Science Fiction and Fantasy
In The Brothers Grimm, acclaimed director Terry Gilliam turns his attention to the fabulous and fantastical world of fairy tales. Although some of the Grimms' classic fables have walk-on parts here, the film's intention is not to simply retell the likes of Cinderella and Rapunzel. Instead, the focus is on the Grimm brothers themselves. Fictionalised into a pair of 19th century conmen, their experience of peddling creaky old yarns around small towns and villages is scant preparation when challenged by a genuine evil curse.
The resplendent visuals of Terry Gilliam return, as Dr Parnassus's travelling sideshow comes into bad business, with a high price to pay.
