Trivia

Guillermo del Toro conceived the Pale Man as an allusion to the perverted image of stigmata - ghastly wounds that are supposed to signify grace and piety. See more »

Goofs

Vidal is using a Luger P-08 pistol. When he "fires" it, although smoke can be seen coming out of the barrel, the distinctive cartridge eject mechanism of the P-08 doesn't move, nor do any spent cartridges eject. This is due to a prohibition on pyrotechnics in the forest used for filming and the sound of gunfire and muzzle flash having been added later. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Pan: A long time ago, in the underground realm, where there are no lies or pain, there lived a Princess who dreamed of the human world. She dreamed of blue skies, soft breeze, and sunshine. One day, eluding her keepers, the Princess escaped. Once outside, the brightness blinded her and erased every trace of the past from her memory. She forgot who she was and where she came from. Her body suffered cold, sickness, and pain. Eventually, she died. However, her father, the King, always knew...

Innocence and brutality
12 October 2006 | by davidcapaSee all my reviews

I saw the movie yesterday in the Spanish premiere and I confirm: it's one of the best Guillermo del Toro's films (if not the best ever). Innocence and brutality, fantasy and reality, together in a wonderful fairy tale about the power of magic in dark times. The performances are great, mainly from Sergi López, Maribel Verdú and the big revelation of the film: the 12 years girl Ivana Baquero. Del Toro repeats the context of the film "El Espinazo del Diablo" ("The Devil's Backbone"), the Spanish Post-Civil War, with the same philosophy: the supernatural invading the daily life in a depressive environment and the innocence of children trapped between both world. But "El Laberinto del Fauno" is most compact, most mature and best done in very aspects, and perhaps it's the most personal movie from Del Toro.
