4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and dark, 18 Dec 2010
This review is from: Hansel And Gretel [DVD] (DVD)
I won't tell the story line, as it already has been done.

First of all, I don't understand why people seem to give most Asian movies where strange things happen, are put in the 'horror' genre. I don't think this movie one should be in that categorie. Yes, ofcourse I know Hansel & Gretel and so do you. And yes, you understand this movie is a bit different than the 'Hänsel und Gretel' of the original writers the brothers Grimm.

I'm into Asian movies, I have to say. And it's a genre not suitable for every one. The Asian story lines are always a bit vague (that's why when ever there's a American re-make version, they add something to the story for the Western audience), the actors act different, and not every one wants to put effort in reading the subtitles, etc.
I enjoyed watching this refreshing version of Hansel & Gretel. I found it an exciting movie, I never had a dull moment. The graphics are stunning and you're dying to find out what's wrong with that little house in the middle of nowhere and the lovely family who live in it. They are friendly, they welcome the young man in their house, the children seem happy to have a new friend, they all look weet and kind but there's something dark about it, you know it, he knows it, but you just can't put your finger on it.

I would recommend the movie!
