I saw it just before Christmas, and thought it was the best film I've seen in years.
i saw it a while ago, and thought it was amazing. Really beautiful, and a lot darker than i thought it was going to be. A proper twisted fairy tale.
Awesome monsters too
with the eyes in his hands was so cool! it looked like something off a tool video.
and the captain, one of the best baddies ever created, he was so evil!
I was really surprised about how great it was, I was told it was a 'fairy tale for adults', so I was literally expecting the Labyrinth, but with swearing and even more crotch shots.
It showed how fairy tales really should be told.
i wasn't surprised too much, but i didn't actually know it was in spanish. I also really liked that it wasn't exclusively a fairy tale, the backdrop of the civil war made it all a lot more magical.
The captain was really evil, and was so much more horrible than the traditional fairy story type hero. It was all a lot more rea. Yay for ace 'childrens' films
the civil war story was strong enough to stand on its own.
I couldn't believe the ending though :( I've only just got over 'my girl'. I thought death by bee stings was bad for a kid...
imagination (as...y'know...the thing happened which would give it all away), or did it 'actually happen'? i'm not sure...
that the fairy tale part of it was her imagination, because of the crapiness of everything going around her, she created this story in her head, as an escape mechanism. think the bit at the end (where the captain 'didn't see' the fawn?) was a clue.
which overall makes it all the more depressing.
Anywhere online I can watch it?
unless you download it
i saw blood diamond tonight, which is slightly cliched but very well directed and very enjoyable as a whole
