In Another Life...


Not sure how about you but the opening of this movie makes my hair stand on ends... and the Spanish words are so absorbing, gripping, captivating...
Watching 'El Laberinto Del Fauno' you will discover a world of fairy tales which existed before it was commercialized and divided into pink and blue... A dangerous world, where nothing is as it seems and every step is a possible death – a cruel place which may leave even adults shivering under the covers, part in terror, part in wonder...

A long time ago,
in the Underground Realm,
where there are no lies or pain,
there lived a princess who dreamt
of the human world.
She dreamt of blue skies,
soft breeze and sunshine.
One day,
eluding her keepers,
the princess escaped.
Once outside...
the bright sun blinded her
and erased her memory.
She forgot who she was
and where she came from.
Her body suffered cold, sickness and pain.
And eventually she died.
However, her father, the king,
always knew that the Princess' soul
would return,
perhaps in another body,
in another place, at another time.
He would wait for her,
until he drew his last breath,
until the world stopped turning.
