Spain, 1944. The dreamy Ofelia, a 10-year-old obsessed with fairy tales, moves with her pregnant mother to join her stepfather, a cruel Fascist officer who’s stationed in the mountains. Fantasy and reality blur, and Ofelia is soon drawn into a fairy tale of her own…

Our take

Combining ambitious, stirring spectacle with an uncompromising account of Spain after the Civil War, Guillermo del Toro’s beloved dark fairytale juxtaposes the fantastical and the political, and is already a modern classic. Winner of 3 Academy Awards.
