"Disco 1: La película
Laura, insieme al marito e al figlio adottivo Simón di sette anni, decide di ristrutturare il vecchio orfanotrofio, dove era cresciuta, per convertirlo in un centro per bambini disabili. La nuova casa e i suoi dintorni misteriosi, stimolano l'immaginazione di Simón che dice di giocare con amici invisibili. All'inizio Laura, pensando che sia tutto frutto della fantasia del bambino, non fa molto caso a queste parole. Ma quando iniziano a verificarsi alcuni strani episodi, Laura ha i primi dubbi, chiedendo aiuto a dei parapsicologi per capire cosa sta succedendo... --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

It was not directed by "Pans Labyrinth" director Guillermo Del Toro.
He only produced this.
That being said.....
This was the best ghost flick I've seen since "The Sixth Sense"
(yes better than "The Others" & "The Ring" too)
and easily one of the most atmospheric to date.
Every facet of this film is beautifully crafted,
Attention is painfully given to each detail
& every angle is expertly covered.
There isn't a single scene that is irrelevant,
regardless of how subtle some might seem.
The most seemingly insignficant of which,
are easily the MOST relevant.
The plot, the characters, the setting, the atmosphere;
everything was Genius, pure genius!!
I damn-near cried at the conclusion,
which in my opinion could have been viewed as either happy, or sad, or both.
All around, it's an excellent flick!!
A worthy addition to any cinephiles collection.
I personally couldnt recommend it enough!
especially for those who loved:
"Tale of Two Sisters",
"Devils Backbone", or
MORAL OF THE STORY:
That which was lost, can always be found, because
That which was loved, can never be forgotten.
Returning to her childhood home; a mysterious seaside orphanage, Laura (Belen Ruede) and her husband Carlos (Fernando Cayo) has plans to reopen the orphanage to help underprivileged children as well as those children with special handicap. They have an adopted son named Simon (Roger Pincep), who is also suffering from HIV and has quite a "posse" of imaginary friends. When strange incidents happen in their home, and Simon mysteriously disappears, Laura must confront the secrets of her past and the otherworldly secrets of the orphanage before it destroys everything that she cares for...
The Orphanage's plot is complex and intelligent, with a powerful script that grabs the viewer that may even give the feeling of a fable. The film has multiple themes as to what it is trying to say; such as listen to what children are telling you, interpretations of childhood and adulthood fears, and the danger of being stationary as time passes you by. The film is more of a mother's point of view of a certain fairy tale that takes a stab at our imagination and the things we take for granted. The film's execution is full of intrigue that is a welcome break from all the Asian horror remakes that Hollywood has bombarded us with. The proceedings have a creepy and eerie feel at times, dare I say also seductive?
The film is also emotionally driven and it does take its time for us to get to know the characters. Laura played by Belen Ruede is a mother bent on helping children, the actress definitely expresses the needed emotions in supporting its carefully constructed story. While the film may support a slight pacing issue, I can excuse this minor fault since this film is Juan Antonio Bayona's full length directorial debut. Laura is a mother very much in tuned to her emotions while her husband Carlos is more of the rational kind. Once Simon disappears, the film takes off into a more intense but curiously enchanting pace; as Laura searches and obsesses in finding her son. The introduction of resident psychic Aurora and the policewoman, Pilar adds more controversy on the plate, since they were obviously set to confuse Laura and the viewer's opinions. Just who is Aurora? Is she a real medium or is she a con artist?
It is very difficult to review "The Orphanage" without spoiling a lot of its effect. I believe I should stop here, before I say anything else. Suffice it to say that if you are expecting something scary on a very graphic scale or if you are expecting an experience that will give you non-stop visual chills, this film may not be for you. Don't get me wrong, the film does have its share of credible chills and shock value but it's the kind that stabs in your imagination. This type of feature will entangle you into its web and the more you're entangled, the better you'll enjoy it. The film is a genuine attempt in creeping you out more than scaring the pants out of you. It is a perfect execution of spirit world storytelling that leaves you an emotionally driven climax with a sensation of terror and disturbing comfort.
Highly Recommended! [4 Stars]
Video/Audio: 2.35 anamorphic widescreen. Clean and impressive transfer with accurate colors. The 5.1 Dolby Digital Spanish Language track is very powerful and clear. Subtitles are excellent.
Features: Making of/Make up effects/interviews/auditions/marketing spots
Gorgeous, well-acted, and flawlessly scripted, "The Orphanage" is a bone-chilling ghost story, a throwback to more traditional haunted-house mysteries, that relies on well-crafted and perfectly executed psychological scares instead of CGI effects and cheap 'bump-in-the-night' jumps and jolts. This film has atmosphere to spare. It slowly crawls under your skin and lingers long after you have left the theater. Some of the scariest moments will indeed make you jump, but its the disturbing nature of the subject matter and the skill with which director Juan Antonio Bayona handles it that will stick with you. Every single plant has a payoff in this film, and no scene or even shot goes wasted. The story is gripping, and will have you on the edge of your seat, and the ending is strangely touching and truly haunting.
I cannot recommend this film enough to horror fans, it is a work of true brilliance.
