Pan's Labyrinth (R2) in March

Optimum Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Pan’s Labyrinth for 12th March 2007 priced at £17.99. From director Guillermo Del Toro, Pan's Labyrinth is a fanciful and chilling story set against the backdrop of a fascist regime in 1944 rural Spain. The film centres on Ofelia, a lonely and dreamy child living with her mother and adoptive father; a military officer tasked with ridding the area of rebels. In her loneliness, Ofelia creates a world filled with fantastical creatures and secret destinies. With post-war repression at its height, Ofelia must come to terms with her world through a fable of her own creation.
