Pan's Labyrinth (movie)

Like what critics say, this is definitely not a movie for children. Although the violence is generally appropriate, I cringed so many times in this movie. But there were times I cringed due to excitement.

The main actress, Ivan Baquero, is really good. Her best scene is the one where she begged her unborn brother not to harm their mother. That scene was really really strong. I could feel that the girl regarded her mother very highly.

I was impressed by the design and movement of the white creature. Correct me if I am wrong but it is very original. I did not expect that the eyes will be worn like that.

It has a bittersweet morbid ending. And my friends know that morbidity and Dexter go very well together.
