Before I start I'd like to clear up a wildly popular misconception about this flick. It was not directed by "Pans Labyrinth" director Guillermo Del Toro. He only produced this.
That being said..... This was the best ghost flick I've seen since "The Sixth Sense" (yes better than "The Others" & "The Ring" too) and easily one of the most atmospheric to date. Every facet of this film is beautifully crafted, Attention is painfully given to each detail & every angle is expertly covered. There isn't a single scene that is irrelevant, regardless of how subtle some might seem. The most seemingly insignficant of which, are easily the MOST relevant.
The plot, the characters, the setting, the atmosphere; everything was Genius, pure genius!! I damn-near cried at the conclusion, which in my opinion could have been viewed as either happy, or sad, or both. All around, it's an excellent flick!! A worthy addition to any cinephiles collection. I personally couldnt recommend it enough! especially for those who loved: "Tale of Two Sisters", "Skeleton Key", "Devils Backbone", or "Pans Labyrinth"
MORAL OF THE STORY: That which was lost, can always be found, because That which was loved, can never be forgotten.
