This film is a lot more fulfilling with some pre-research into the Franco gov't, censorship restrictions, etc. While the film is fulfilling from a visuals & tranquil pacing perspective alone, the backstory that is not typically covered in US History lessons will give a lot of insight to the World these characters are living in

A little girl starts to believe in spirits after seeing the movie Frankenstein and adults failed to enlight her.
Beautiful and poetic.
With the same mesmerizing little girl as in "Cria Cuervos".

Spanish director Víctor Erice's The Spirit of the Beehive has to be part of the inspiration for Pan's Labyrinth. It just has to be. Set during the Spanish Civil War, it stars a couple of young girls who, after seeing Universal's Frankenstein, reimagine him as an immortal spirit and come to believe he resides in an abandoned barn. For the older girl, the world of spirits seems an excuse to give in to dark impulses. For the younger - whose eyes will SWALLOW YOUR SOUL, gosh - it is a mystery she herself creates in trying to understand death. Certainly, there's a lot of tension in the film just from the girls putting themselves in odd kind of dangers, both physical and spiritual. The film operates like poetry, with images overlapping and resonating, but does not easily give up its secrets. It's gorgeous, quiet, intriguing, at times eerie, purposefully lyrical, and for all its art and spare image making, still captivates. Del Toro fans would do well to check it out, but it's a recommendation I extend to all true cinephiles.

This movie will not be everyone cup of tea. Extremely boring if only they would have gone with the idea that the little girl spoiler but no.
