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

Great Surprise
10 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

Well, no Anthony Hopkins so I didn't expect greatness, but was pleasantly surprised. Gaspard Ulliel did a very good job and has a wonderful look about him. I was caught up in the story about how Hannibal got started. To give an idea of my opinion so you know where I'm coming from, I think Anthony Hopkins is one of the greatest actors of our time and he was brilliant as Hannibal. That being said, I was reluctant to see this. However I can now say I'm hoping for more. The movie was done very professionally. They are saying this is the best since Silence of the Lambs. I now believe them although I did like Hannibal better than most. I don't want to give too much away, just believe me it's worth the time to see it. Just don't expect Anthony Hopkins. Keep in mind this is Hannibal at a much younger age. Go into it with an open mind.
