Hansel and Gretel (2007) – New Cinema Wallpaper of the Day – Yim Pil-Sung

New Cinema Wallpaper of the Day
Thursday, September 11, 2008

Nominated for a FIPRESCI Critics Award and playing at the upcoming Times BFI 52nd London Film Festival (October 15th-30th), Hansel and Gretel (film listing) is on my must see list for films released in 2008 (it came out in South Korea in 2007 but gets more of an international presence this year). The film marks the sophomore effort of Yim Pil-Sung who last brought us the divisive Antarctic Journal. Every image I’ve seen from the film bears an incredibly lush and stylish dark fairy tale theme and word of mouth has been nothing short of exceptional. I was hoping to catch this one on the big screen, but don’t see that happening anytime soon, so I will probably buy the DVD.
