One of the bettre ghost stories one is likely to ever see. Do not be fooled into believeing it is anything like "Pan's Labyrinth", this is atotally different story, and comparisons like that diminish Del Toro's breadth as a movie maker. I cannot get intoi everything here, but I will say that this movie reminds me more of "Dark Water" than to any of the other movies to which it is often compared. In short, it is a well-done movie that has a few scary moments, but in the end, it may just leave you in tears. It is that affecting.
An awesome experience is how I would describe this movie. Beautiful, despite its setting during WWI (and graphic scenes), the story is one of finding what one believes may have been lost, of hope and faith against all odds. Reminiscent of Amelie (comparison is inevitable), but also different, darker in many ways. I loved it. This one will stay in my mind for a very long while (and I will smile while thinking of it).
One that may move up after I watch it again. A story of a crime, told from different sides. An allegory of the human condition, and after watching this movie, you realize just how sad that condition is.
