Strong female leads move the story along. It turns the fairy tale "damsel in distress" story on its head by having a princess risking her life to save an innocent.

Joe disagreed with the rating and said:
I'm not sure but I think all conversations between women were either about the step father or the people in the mountains. Great movie with a female protagonist, but it is a movie about a bunch of people dominated by the step father and Franco and they tend to talk about them.

Mercedes and Ofelia talk about believing in fairies and Ofelia's dress. As far as I can tell neither of those are about men. This film passes with flying colours.

I agree with it. Mercedes and Ofelia talk about fairies and magic, the rebels, and her mother's condition. No mention of a man happens when they're outside and Mercedes is talking to Ofelia while getting her milk.

Totally passes. Strong, named female characters talk about women, dress and shoes, old creaky houses, believing in fairies, pregnancy, escaping, cooking, homesickness and the labyrinth.
