Once Upon A Time In A Dark, Dark Forest...

A dark and gripping modern age fairy tale for adults, spinning the original Grimm fairytale on its head. Following a car crash on a country road, Eun-soo (Chun Jeong-Myeong) is led to safety by a girl in a red cloak (Shim Eun-kyoung), to her house, deep in the forest. Accepting her family's hospitality for the night, he gradually learns that he is trapped in the woods with this strange picture perfect family and of the sinister story behind the seemingly innocent smiles of the children...

Sumptuous production design by Ryu Seong-hee (The Host; Oldboy) and outstanding cinematography by Kim Ji-yong (Forbidden Quest; A Bittersweet Life).

if you like the ring and the grudge or films with creepy children singing the theme tune then you will love this. it is very scary in parts and the plot had me gripped! really worth a watch.

creepy and wonderful. this is korean cinema at its best. the film is packed with story, suspense, beautiful scenery and great actors. i even showed this to my sister who doesn't like this kind of thing, and she was raving about it afterwards! a fairy tale told like never before. get this and see what i am talking about for yourself.

Top 100  Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer

The beginning of the movie is stylish, the director shows a lot of talent in his ability and gets you into the story. The earlier scenes are weird, almost like something out of the Twilight Zone, it's bizarre and surreal with cartoonish decor and overly colourful sets.
The story begins to develop and it soon turns from being all bright and happy to dark and sinister. The leading actors all do a great job, the leading man is convincing in the role of the helpless stranded car accident victim. The most outstanding performances in this film are from the three children, despite being of mixed ages and all being quite young, they put on brilliant performances that work well.
The movie develops nicely with a very interesting and intriguing story. The stylish and cool visuals keep your eyes locked on the screen and the number of questions that need to be answered keep your mind locked on.

Overall: Hansel and Gretel is a Korean Super Movie. It's entertaining and interesting, from early on you as the viewer is sucked in and ultimately become a part of the story. Throughout the film you're thrown questions which keep you guessing, motives you want to understand and a mystery you want to solve.
A very dark fairytale which is brilliantly written and brilliantly directed.
Must See world cinema movie.

 Strange and confusing

| | See all thebbfcfanclub's reviews (33)

This film promised so much and almost delivered. The style is brilliant and the fantasy world is wonderfully dream like. Trouble is the story was a little too like a dream, things kept happening with no explanation or reason. I kept having to watch bits again to check what was happening to who and even then it made no sense.

Surely a fairy tale should have a moral, it did then it was lost on me.

It's weird but not at all scary (unless perhaps it's watched past your bed time)

This is a very good film and worth a watch but more as a strange curio than a really enjoyable horror/fantasy film.
