Laberinto del Fauno, El


You were never alone.

When you're older, you'll understand.

It hasn't been easy for me either.

Your brother's at it again.

Tell him one of your stories.

I'm sure that'll calm down.

My brother, my brother.

Many, many years ago... a sad, faraway land...

...there was an enormous mountain

made of rough, black stone.

At sunset...

...on top of that mountain...

...a magic rose blossomed every night

that made whoever plucked it immortal.

But no one dared go near it...

...because its thorns were full of poison.

Men talked amongst themselves

about their fear of death...

...and pain, but never about

the promise of eternal life.

And every day, the rose wilted

unable to bequeath its gift to anyone.

Forgotten and lost at the top

of that cold, dark mountain...

...forever alone,

until the end of time.

Come in.

- How is she?

- Very weak.

She'll have as much rest

as she needs.

I'll sleep down here.

- And my son?

- Pardon?

Excuse us, Captain.

My son, how is he?

For the moment, there's no

reason to be alarmed.

Very good.

Captain, your wife should not have

traveled at such a late stage of pregnancy.

- Is that your opinion?

- My professional opinion, yes, sir.

A son should be born

wherever his father is.

That's all.

One more thing, Captain.

What makes you so sure

the baby is a male?

Don't f*** with me.

At 8 o'clock we detected movement

in the northwestern sector.


Sergeant Bayona searched the area

and captured a suspect.

The other one's his son,

here from the town.

Captain, my father

is an honest man.

Let me judge that.

Take your hat off in front of me.

We found this weapon on him.

It's been fired.

My father was hunting

rabbits, Captain.

Again, keep quiet.

"No God, no country, no Master"?

- Just like that-how do you like that?
