I had always wondered why Pan’s Labyrinth wasn’t released in book form and a few days ago I was lucky to find that it had. It’s such a beautiful and haunting movie and the novel is no different.
Normally, I’m not a fan of the early 20th century due to WWII and Francoist Spain being too morbid. Too dark. Too real... But Pan’s Labyrinth manages to teach us about this dark period in Spain, sacrifice, family, bravery and the war era by symbolism through weaving various fantastic tales in between what is happening in the real world.
Our grandparents were so damn tough. We are triggered by such smaller things in comparison... It makes you damn grateful for their sacrifices and the fact most of us even have the option to get ‘bothered’ by such pathetic trifles as a wrong delivery of dinner or a movie downloading too slowly. It’s a lesson for us to never return to those atrocious times and hope that we never have to experience true war as they all did.
