I just watched this. I liked it alot more than Pan's Labyrinth as I felt the political side was alot more developed and it hung together better.
It's such an amazing film: beautiful, inspiring & moving. More obstensibly 'political' films should be like this, subtle enough to neither come off as simplstic sloganeering nor feel tacked on to the film.
So yeah. If you enjoyed Pan's Labyringth you should check this.
