“Many, many years ago in 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…”
From “Pan’s Labyrinth” (El Laberinto del Fauno), written and directed by Guillermo del Toro.
