Vic ✨’s review published on Letterboxd:
Wow... I am speechless.
I relate very strongly with Ofelia. I remember when I was younger, I had an incredibly vivid imagination and would constantly daydream (I still do!). I believed in fairytales and would see characters walking around in the real world, whether they were good or bad. Ofelia’s sense of wonder really resontated with me because despite being in a terrible situation, she could still see the magic in everyday life.
With a simple story shrouded with deep meaning, dark themes and twisted imagery, this film was nothing short of spectacular. I might sound childish when I say this, but even if the world can be a horrifying place, I believe it can be truly magical sometimes. 4.5/5 eyeball hands.
