Francos Labyrinth

The Chronicals of Narnia + Schindlers List = Pans Labyrinth. This movie did not entirely work for me, it may have been because my expectations where so high. Ivana Baquern did fine work as Ofila, Sergi Lopez's Captain Vidal is one of the most evil characters in film, and the special effects were memoriable. The story however never fully engaged me, and the conflicting elements of high fantasy and high violance were in the end, kind of hard to process together. I did however like the anti-authoritarian message of the film, about the dangers of just following orders. I left the theater unsatisfyed.
