Postmodern analysis of magic realism and fairy tale elements in the movie Pan's Labyrinth
Simona Skupek, 2016, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: Guillermo del Toro created the movie Pan’s Labyrinth. In the movie he presents the story of a child named Ofelia set in 1944 in Spain. The time is after the civil war and people, tired of famine, have accepted the defeat of the Left and the regime of the winner, Francisco Franco, whose oppression is presented through the main characters and their stories. Del Toro presents the oppression in a unique way, by integrating fairy tale elements into the realistic plot. A close analysis of the movie reveals that we are not watching a fairy tale, but a magic realist movie. Fairy-tale elements are incorporated in the realistic plot so that the movie incorporates the techniques of magic realism. The movie is analysed as a magic realist narrative.
