Satisfactory Essays
Pan's Labyrinth takes place in the center of violence and war, so from beginning to the end, there is no escape from violence.

Vidal orders his pregnant wife and step-daughter to take a long journey to live in a house near a military base.

Her disobedience can be seen throughout the film,
