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

A vast disappoint to the Hannibal Lecter series.
24 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the WORST Movies I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!! This movie is simply TERRIBLE!!!!! I had to stop the movie halfway in because it was SO BORING!!!!! I absolutely loved Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal so I decided to watch this movie to see if it matched up to it's predecessors. Well, it didn't. The plot line was terrible, the acting was terrible, and everything else in the movie was terrible. In Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal, everything was brilliant from the acting to the plot you name it. This movie did not do these movies any justice. In fact, it disappoints the whole series. Gaspard Ulliel does not give the part of Hannibal Lecter or Anthony Hopkins any justice. Anthony Hopkins is the best Hannibal bar none and Gaspard Ulliel was not the person to follow in his footsteps. I would NEVER recommend this movie to others.
