A review of Terry Gilliam’s film The Brother’s Grimm

The Brothes Grimm

The Brothers Grimm is a Tarry Gilliam film that asks what if the folk story gathered by the brothers grim were real and what if they brothers themselves lived threw some of them. It stars Matt Damon and Heath Ledger as the brothers William and Jack Grimm. The brothers are charlatans and tricksters scaring townsfolk and making a living as exterminators of the supernatural. They send member of there team ahead to scare some town people with stories of witches or monsters in the wood using a little science and some rope they make it appear almost real to the villager at that time the brother sweep in and destroy the offending monster for a modest fee that the fearful and superstitious townsfolk are all to happy to pay. How ever the French government take a dislike to the brother and other like them stirring up the belief in the old ways that the French government has stamped out.

The brother are arrested and to be killed for there crimes agent the French people. However a weasel French solder get’s the idea to use the brother to show a particularly stubborn Germanic town in there lands that folktales are not real the brothers wishing to keep there heads agree to help and go to the town only to learn that the tale of old may not be false after all.

May of the old brothers grim stories like jack and the bean stalk, red riding hood and even sleeping beauty crop up hear and their in the movie as the brother unravel the old legend and help to combat the growing darkness that threatens to consume the small village.

Run time is 118 minute and this film is rated PG13. This is a good film and a delight to anyone who likes to see a retelling of some old stories.
