Luis' Review of A Tale of Two Sisters
A Tale of Two Sisters(2003)
There is quite a lot of chatter about Rose & Lotus (Janghwa, Hongryeon) which makes it as eternal as it has been on most message boards. Whether the film is scary or not, it doesn't take away from the artistry the film makers applied into this work of art. From the beautifully eerie house and the haunting unsettling score, to the quelling cinematography and a cast of acting brilliance, this film gives it all that you want from a horror point of view.
Never really knowing what truly happened in this Korean folktale, you'll have a lot of discussions trying to figure out what exactly happened. However, the idea is that there is a basic concept within the story, but with many twists and turns that keep you guessing at every moment's time.
This cannot be considered the best horror film ever made, but merely the best film ever made of its kind; a psychological film that will never be forgotten.
