What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Debashine Thangevelo A definite must-see.
Laetitia Pople 'n Aangrypende fantasieverhaal.
Kenneth Turan A fantasy more real than life itself.
Melanie Daly It's terrifying and, at the same time, mesmerising and splendid, sparing the audience very little as it entrenches itself deeply and permanently into your consciousness.

Peter Feldman Pan's Labyrinth, though transmitting other frightening images, which may be of concern to younger children, is, nevertheless, an exceptional experience.
Barry Ronge Apart from its exceptional visual richness, Pan's Labyrinth is a potent allegory of life itself, a rare discovery in a commercially produced work.
Anton Marshall Guillermo del Toro's masterpiece is without a doubt one of most captivating, disturbing and beautifully shot films ever made. Don't take the kids though.
Jonathan Trout Compelling from first frame to last, Pan's Labyrinth never misses a chance to wrench, quell or quicken your heart: this visionary project propels Del Toro into the highest league of filmmakers. There can be no excuses. See this film.
Jason Anderson Del Toro concocts something very special out of ancient magic and human muck.
James Berardinelli The lack of family friendliness does not diminish what del Toro has achieved with this magical motion picture.
Peter Travers Del Toro never coddles the audience. He means for us to leave Pan's Labyrinth shaken to our souls. He succeeds triumphantly.
Pan's Labyrinth is an utterly captivating, engrossing and disturbing film that's unlike most any other you'll see this or any other year. If you love or long for superior filmmaking, you should rush out to see it, but remember it's not for the kids.
Tomatometer A spellbinding fable, this is Alice in Wonderland for grown-ups.
