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

Goofs

If Hannibal had really been schooled in Japanese sword art, regardless of hand dominance, he'd have been holding the sword handle (tsuka) with his right hand on top and his left hand below. The Japanese always draw with their right hand. See more »

A good film ... for teenagers
18 February 2007 | by firewall-addressSee all my reviews

I've just seen this film ... Well, good things first. This film is well made, with attention to details, no stupid goofs, actors performance didn't make me uneasy for the most part. I'm from Lithuania myself, and Lithuania was displayed quite truthfully - thanks, Hollywood.

Now bad things ... I think that they bother me because I've seen the original Hannibal movie, and was expecting something else. But anyway:

1) First, I didn't like the idea of making a pervert serial killer a kind of positive hero, or martyr. Hey, Hollywood, you want youngsters to admire serial killers and try to be like them? You'll get it. The love story of Hannibal also fits here.

2) Second, the idea of making Hannibal a kind of samurai sword fighter is, IMHO, absolutely out of place here. I understand that sword fighting looks cool by itself, but we are making a good old western serial killer movie here, or don't we?

3) And, finally, the performance of the main hero. The Hannibal is very evil person, but he had personality, charisma. And conversion from normal person to a maniac seems a good place to demonstrate passions, emotions, TO ACT. This Hannibal spent all the film with the same blank face - he's the real killer ... of the movie.

To sum it up - a well done movie for teenagers, who want to see some cool action, some maniacs, some blood and killin' and don't pay attention to the actors performance (unless it is really bad) and the ideas of the film. And, of course, who never saw the original.

However, if You expect from this movie something similar to the original, just don't waste your time. Imagine a mix of samurai movie, teenage maniac thriller and love story, all with a good budget - You'll get the idea.
