Ophelia finds no place in the aggressive and brutal reality, she runs away to a place where he feels more security in their darkest dreams in their tales. To it’s flying fairy, scary, mysterious creature says that she is a Princess, promises adventure and a loving father in Dreamland.
Del Toro is so stylish and intelligently builds a picture that at times do not understand that it is primary. Where’s really real and what only children’s fiction. Who is a fabulous creature and who is the real monster.
The villain in uniform, Ofelia’s stepfather is a truly awesome character. The killer kills ordinary people, without a shade of regret and compassion.

This depersonalization gives him the moral right to inhuman treatment with them, although, in fact, only he, the captain is inhuman.
