I just saw it for the first time, via DVD. I thought while its story was dark, it was very beautifully done, even if its violence was a bit too graphic. As it was filmed in Spanish, I had to resort to the English subtitles which sometimes flew by too fast, but only on a couple of occasions. It was a good modern fairytale that didn't have to resort to a dreamlike interface between this world and Faerie.
