Pan’s Labyrinth is one of the cinema’s great fantasies, rich with darkness, folklore and fairy-tale and we thought there’s no better place to see this than in the dark and mysterious woodlands of Mount Edgcumbe. A fairy tale for adults it is set in 1940s Spain where recently remarried Carmen and daughter Ofelia move in with the cold and authoritarian new husband, Vidal. Finding her new life difficult, Ofelia seeks refuge in a labyrinth she discovers next to the house. A magical creature named Pan, the guardian of the labyrinth gives her three dangerous tasks.

It’s a fairy tale of such potency and awesome beauty that it reconnects the adult imagination to the primal thrill and horror of the stories that held us spellbound as children.” – Jim Emerson, Chicago Sun-Times, 2006

Dir. Guillermo Del Toro, Mexico/Spain, 2006, 119 mins, subtitled.
Cast. Ivana Baquero, Doug Jones, Sergi Lopez, Ariadna Gil, Maribel Verdu.
