The general's character is what really made the movie a hit for me.

Edit: I really should watch that movie again. I loved it, but some of the finer details have been lost to time.

You probably shouldn't comment on stuff you have no clue about. Pans Labyrinth is far from a 'childrens movie', it contains scenes of graphic violence and is rated R.

Not really sure there was a lot of symbolism in the movie. As far as were the monsters real or not, I believe that it is left up to the viewers to decide. Personally I think they were, but that's mainly because I like a happy ending. and yeah, it's not a kids movie. My girlfriend doesn't like it when I put my hands in front of my face and pretend to be the creepy monster from PL.

I suggest you interpret the fantasy elements how you'd like. If by "clock thing" you're referring to the Captain's broken watch, his father slammed it down before he died, cracking the face and stopping the watch so his son would know the exact moment of his death. He intended to do the same.

A "deep" movie doesnt necessarily mean with lots of symbolism.

I didn't really pick up on the deep meaning. I thought Hellboy 2 was more enjoyable though.

I like to think that it wasn't real. That it was all just her way of coping with what was going on around her. Sure there are some parts that don't really follow that, but whatever.

I loved the movie, the story, the acting, the cinematogrpahy and hte dialogue was very good.

To me its Del Toro's 2nd best film, this would be my 2nd fav of his. First would be what you ask? Cover is below :P

Cronos would be 3rd ;)

The meaningful crossing over of her fantasy world and the real world and at the end they merge with her death.

Or something like that.

It's surrealistic with goats saying strange stuff so obviously it's very deep.

I haven't seen it, but it is definitely a children's movie.someotherguy654

Its got some of the grimist examples of torture and murder I have seen in any film, its really not for kids, unless you want to warp them mentally for some kind of social experiment.

This and also even though the rebels defeated the captain if you look up the history you'll see that they lost the war. (I remember a line saying even if this captain was dead there's others just like him) So the ending with the rebels was supposed to portray a small victory before their eventual defeat.

The cinematography in Pans Labyrinth was great . I had a hard time enjoying it and reading the subtitles at the same time. Damn, I wished I knew how to speak Spanish.
