movie time

(I don't know if there have already been previews on TV and this is a redundant post, but here it is)
Coming out late December is the movie Pan's Labyrinth

Two blurbs about it:
"Award-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro delivers a unique, richly imagined epic with PAN’S LABYRINTH, a gothic fairytale set against the postwar repression of Franco’s Spain. Harnessing the formal characteristics of classic folklore to a 20th Century landscape, del Toro delivers a timeless tale of good and evil, bravery and sacrifice, love and loss."
"Pan's Labyrinth" is the story of a young girl that travels with her mother and adoptive father to a rural area up North in Spain, 1944. After Franco´s victory. The girl lives in an imaginary world of her own creation and faces the real world with much chagrin. Post-war Fascist repression is at its height in rural Spain and the girl must come to terms with that through a fable of her own."

Somewhat related to "The Devil's Backbone", if you've seen it. I already want the soundtrack.

I will certainly try to get to see it.
Finally did see it, last November. It was indeed very good. Violent, but still a rare imaginative piece of work.
