?Pan's Labyrinth? is a film released by Warner Bros. Pictures International, Pan-Europeene and Telecino movie production companies. It is a property of Picturehouse Production Company, based in North America. The film is directed and written by Guillermo Del Toro who is also one of its producers. The film casts a wide array of characters. The lead actor is Ofelia, the self-reliant and gritty twelve year old played by IvanaBaquero. Captain Vidal, played by Sergi Lopez, is Ofelia's stepfather and general to the Spanish Army. He serves to eliminate the resistance guerrilla fighters that hide in the forest. Mercedes is General Vidal's servant who conspires together with the doctor (IvanaBaquero) to keep the guerrilla in the forest. Ariane Gil, who acts as Ofelia's mother, plays the role of Carmen. The other producers are Bertha Navarro, Alfonso Cuaron, FridaTorresblanco and Alvaro Augustin.

The movie is clearly more than a novelization of the war as soon as one looks beyond the authorial figures of the film (Vernon 156).
