The soundtrack of Pan’s Labyrinth has an transcendent, almost eternal quality that I cannot adequately describe. Every time I hear it, I feel elevated. It makes me sad and happy at the same time. If Long, long time ago does not give you goose-bumps, I don’t know what will.
And the film itself is one for the ages – a haunting and beautiful masterpiece that stayed with me long after the viewing. If you haven’t watched it yet, do yourself a favour and grab the dvd. Or better still, watch it on a big screen.
