Storyline

Mischa and Hannibal, baby brother and sister, are inseparable; it is their love for each other that ties their bond. Their companionship is forever binding, until, with their family, while hiding from the Nazi war machine a twisted set of circumstance sets the pace for a most vicious attack on the future of one Hannibal Lecter for the sworn vengeance for the brutal killing of his baby sister. Years later, we find Hannibal, the teenager, setting up in Paris, and living with his aunt Lady Murasaki Shikibu and studying at medical school here he finds his forte. Still searching for his sister's murderers, still bitter and still ever hopeful of satisfying his desire for retribution. This chance arrives, and soon we are to learn that for a pound of flesh lost a pound of flesh must be repaid. This is the horrific tale of justice and honor, a young man's growing pains that will have the guilty paying with more than just flesh and bone. This is the up and rising tale of the young Hannibal, ... Written by Cinema_Fan

Not the best but well worthy of the Saga
8 February 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I went and seen Hannibal Rising last night and have to say that even though it was not as good as the novel i still highly recommend this movie, the acting is pretty good given they are not your high profile Hollywood stars and Gaspard Ulliel play a wonderful Hannibal Lecter.

The scenery is beautiful, the war scenes are very well shot and the acting throughout the movie is well above what i expected especially from the little known french actor playing the famous cannibal.

Don't go see this movie expecting a similar style of film like the others in the Saga, just go and enjoy the movie and marvel as you see what sort of monster a human being is capable of becoming.

Overall i think the movie holds enough of its own to be a very worthy addition to the "Hannibal" franchise.

Fans of the book will probably find the movie more absorbing than those who haven't read it. But do yourself a favour and read the book before seeing the movie as its vital to really get a good understanding of whats going on and the story behind it.

Would also like to add that the music and score for the movie is first class and almost gives it a "dream like" feel to it
