A great film. I'll never get tired of watching it. Fernando Tielve is superb.

Cracking film that Guillermo del Toro has called his most personal work, and that must surely be his best, much better than e.g. The Shape of Water, which has some great visuals and one great character but suffers from simplistic and overly obvious plotting. Here, Fernando Tielve makes an appealing lead. He had never been in a film before and only auditioned to be an extra, but del Toro obviously got other ideas. Unlike many coming-of-age pictures set in orphanages and children's homes, this one depicts a place that, apart from the obvious bad apple, is OK by the standards of the time and run by decent people. It's also a bit unusual in that the protagonist is not a heavily-bullied shy outcast but quite bold and socially savvy.

Excellent movie. Very sad and spooky, seems like it's set on a different planet. Mostof the boy leads are excellent, great cinematography, the director is not afraid of long close ups of their faces or bare feet. The plot is engrossing, the movie is well made, it's worth a view.

One of the few boy films that is genuinely spooky. Sad and true to life as so many foreign films tend to be, 'The Devil's Backbone' brings out great performances from the boy actors involved.

I thought this film was very good and the story was very touching. The film brings a lot of good meaning and it tells a story like a actual story of a war that took place, a bomb that took place, and a lot of children and people dies in that aspect including a innocent boy. The story brings a lot of good attention into its place because as of today many things takes place so as you watch this film you'll feel good things because helping people and children from this situation can change everything and more, but this film brings more than one meaning. I loved the storyline I thought the writer did fantastic bringing all the pieces together and colors; awesome sizzling. Also the cast did fantastic too I thought they had a good personality and more. I recommend this film.
