Genre Grandeur – Pan’s Labyrinth (2006) – Tranquil Dreams

Check out my post for March’s Genre Grandeur over at MovieRob’s. This month’s genre is Latin Directors and my choice is also the first Latin directed film I had ever seen, Pan’s Labyrinth. In case you haven’t heard, this is directed by the one and only Guillermo del Toro. I’m a huge fan of the man. He always adds a great atmosphere and the story line is awesome.
Remember to check out the other posts. There are some fantastic choices that reminded me of how I could have chosen that also and regretted for a moment 😉 But then, this is still one of my favorite movies, so what can I say?
Enjoy! 🙂
