El laberinto del fauno
One of the most popular Spanish language films of recent years, this acclaimed combination of history and fantasy tells of Ofelia, a young girl living in the midst of Franco’s Spain. Sent with her expectant mother to live with her step-father, a sadistic general in the regime, Ofelia begins to yearn for a magical world like those in her books. Exploring the grounds by the house, she discovers a mysterious maze presided over by a magical faun, who offers an opportunity to escape the horrors of the world around her.
