From the start of El Laberinto del Fauno, Ofelia’s love of fairy tales is evident. Set in the tumultuous Spanish woodlands of WWII, where a small band of anti-Falangist rebels is hiding out. Capitán Vidal, Ofelia’s new stepfather and soon-to-be father of her half-brother, has moved in with Ofelia and her pregnant mother. Ofelia seeks her escape and distraction from the modern world order and its warring factions by delving into the older, magical, and enchanting world of fairies, fauns, and giant frogs with the cruel, unforgiving, and totalitarian idealist Capitán Vidal and his Falangist soldiers, who must root out these resistance fighters of the hills and forests. Beautiful, cute, graphic, and deadly all at the same time.
