I understand it may not be everyone's ideal film . But to me it's the best film ever , its cosy/cute , yet is creepy and disturbing , it is a world I would love to live in . It's also quite life affirming I think and is quite happy/sad . It's charming and childish , I like this film that is for sure !

If you like world cinema, you might love this film as much as I did. It has suspense and it is creepy. Don't read too much about the film. The best way is just to watch it without knowing what will happen.

And don't listen to the people giving the film one star.

This film is a puzzle to be solved. It is like a rubics cube; you will either solve it and get a sense of deep satisfaction or be baffled and then lose interest. Far simpler to solve, you only need to step back, think outside of the box and ask yourself what does this represent? If you have an inquisitive mind you will enjoy this "children's tale". I use the term loosely because this is not the original childrens fable by the brothers Grimm, but it uses the overall premise of being lost in an enchanted wood, stumbling into a sinister situation, unable to find your way out.

An apathetic father to be is driving alone through a lonely mountain road. His pregnant wife hangs up on him just before his car crashes leaving him dazed and stranded. Out of the thick forest emerges a young girl with a lamp; she leads him back to her home and "rescue", deep in the forest. There the girls parents, younger sister and elder brother await. What looks to be a picture of happiness and serenity in an idyllic house holds a secret that will make it impossible to leave this "paradise". Indeed, why would you want to leave such dream home?

Needless to say, things are not quite what they seem and dark, sinister presence begins to reveal itself in the characters at the house and in another couple that stumble upon this ideal paradise.

Key to understanding this film is to understand who the children are. This is not a film specifically about children, as emphasised by the revelation when the boy and oldest girl from the house visit a secret doorway hidden in the woods.

Although the children are the central point of the story you must remember that this is not a literal tale but a fable, where characters and events are representative of a deeper, broader message.

This is a Korean horror film loosely based on the fairy tale. The story starts with a man who crashes his car while arguing on the phone with his girlfriend. He wakes at night in a forest and is led by a young girl to a mysterious house. From there is gets weird and more than a little creepy.

It's an excellent film, like most good horror films it relies on creepiness and suggestion rather than gore. It';s well acted, especially the kids and it's well filmed. At times it has almost a magical feel, making it feel like a fairy tale rather than a straight horror.

The only downside for me was that it dragged a little near the end. It could have been edited down to make a tighter experience. As issues go, it's no a major one and didn't spoil the film.

If you like a creepy film with a good story, that looks good then this is well worth checking out.

Look below the surface, and fairy tales can be terrifying, grotesque and unnerving... which makes them perfect for a horror-fantasy movie.

And there's no shortage of either beauty or horror in "Hansel and Gretel" -- it's a dark fairy tale that starts off as lovely as an antique wind-up toy, but soon the prettiness flakes away to show the horrors underneath. The actors all do excellent jobs (particularly the three kids), but the real star here is Yim Pil-Sung's lushly atmospheric direction.

After a car accident, Eun-soo (Cheon Jeong Myeong) finds himself wandering through a lush green forest, until he comes across a colorful little cottage that is every child's dream -- countless toys, and no food but candy and cake. The family inside seems similarly perfect, but they're strangely reluctant to let Eun-soo go -- and soon the parents vanish, leaving Eun-soo to watch the three eerie kids.

Oh yes, and whenever poor Eun-soo tries to walk back to civilization, the the forest itself swamps him with snow and darkness.

Stuck with the kids (and a pair of increasingly creepy yuppies who are also stranded), Eun-soo begins to realize that this house isn't just creepy because of the "children's fantasy" theme. There's something dark and weepy in the attic, a girl wanders through the house and yard, and the children start to demonstrate darker facets -- and mysterious powers that are keeping him trapped.

Porcelain doll-women, people swallowed by trees, magical picture books, an endless forest littered with toys, and a house where children's wishes come true.

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!
