Doesn't toy with the concept nearly enough for my tastes, content to be a vaguely quirky dark comedy.
Definitely for the more adventurous viewer.
A reread of the Grimm tales may make this more of a film buff's outing, but frankly one shouldn't have to work so hard to make sense of these meanderings.
A bizarre film, bearing only a slight resemblance to the Hansel and Gretel tale, with plot holes big enough to drive a truck through, but entertaining, nonetheless. An adult brother and sister are left in the woods by their father, with a note from their mother instructing them to make their way to their uncle's house, in Spain. The rest of the film recounts their adventures. I liked it well enough to seek some other films by the same director, but felt this one shied away from some of the darker places this could have gone. Oh, and comedy? I did not see anything funny here.
a Dutch twist to the Hanzel & Gretel story. Suppose to be a dark comedy. Jacoub & his sis forget the name) Go out with their father to collect firewood only to be abandoned & left with nothing but a note to find their uncle in Spain. Didn?t seem like dark humor to me. although the ghost town area was cool. (made me think of a cool book I read) Was a different spin for sure but they didn?t need to advertise it as such. I don?t th ink this was the right movie I was looking for (think of) when I ordered it. There were parts I like & didn?t but after awhile although I was still watching it, I lost interest. D
Parts of it were fun, but near the end I just wanted it to stop. Had a lot of hints of creepy incest.
