Spain, 1944. Officially, the Civil War has been over for five years, but a small group of rebels fights on in the northern mountains of Navarra. Dreamy 10-year-old Ofelia and her pregnant mother Carmen move to Navarra, joining her new stepfather, Captain Vidal. A Fascist officer, he is under orders to destroy the rebels. Ofelia discovers an overgrown, tumbledown labyrinth and meets an ancient faun who claims to know her true identity and secret destiny. She can learn them if she completes three tasks before the full moon. But no one must know: not her ailing mother or her new friend Mercedes. Time is running out, and both Ofelia and the rebels will have to battle hardship and cruelty in order to gain their freedom. Who can be trusted in a time of lies and danger? Is the faun telling the truth ...? If not, who is?

Cronos by Guillermo del Toro ( Visual )
45 editions published between 1922 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The directorial debut from Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth), Cronos combines a surreal and distincitve take on the classic vampire yarn with an allegory about US/Mexican relations. Cronos concerns elderly antique dealer Jesus Gris who, with his eight-year-old granddaughter Aurora, discovers an ancient artifact that once belonged to a 16th century alchemist. Unbeknownst to Gris, the device-which resemble an ornate mechanical beetle-houses an immortal parasite that will grant eternal life to its host. The cost? An extreme aversion to daylight and an agonising thirst for human blood. The film which introduced del Toro to Hollywood won the Mercedes Benz award at Cannes, and is a terrifying modern Vampire tale." -- Container

"One of the most personal film by Guillermo del Toro,... is also among his most frightening and emotionally layered. Set during the final week of the Spanish Civil War, it tells the tale of a twelve-year-old boy who, after his freedom-fighting father is killed, is sent to a haunted rural orphanage full of terrible secrets. Del Toro expertly combines gothic ghost story, murder mystery, and historical melodrama in a stylish melange that, like his later Pan's Labyrinth, reminds us the scariest monsters are often the human ones"--Container
