El laberinto del fauno

I’m going to write about a film that now is appearing in all the TV programmes because it had won three Oscars. This film is “El laberinto del fauno”, produced by Guillermo del Toro.

This film is set in the year 1944, it explains a travel in which Ofelia, a thirteen year-old teen travels with her mother to a small town, in that site there is a man whose name is Vidal and he is a captain of the Franco’s army, Ofelia’s mother falls in love with that captain who has the job to kill all the republicans in that zone.
One they Ofelia find a labyrinth with a strange creature called Fauno that says Ofelia that she is the queen of those creatures, to be the queen she has to pass three tests before the full moon, the history will continue mixing historical events and lots of fantasy.

I think it is a very interesting film because it mixes a good fantasy and the Spanish civil war, also in the film appear lots of famous actors and the most special is Ofelia, the protagonist which in the real live is a Catalan thirteen old girl called Ivana Baquero and she did a fascinating actuation on that film.
I don’t want to explain a lot, I think that the best think is to see the film and then we will comment it.
