Trivia

According to director in an interview, the title was changed because this version focuses on Gretel, who is older: "It's awfully faithful to the original story. It's got really only three principal characters: Hansel, Gretel, and the Witch. We tried to find a way to make it more of a coming of age story. I wanted Gretel to be somewhat older than Hansel, so it didn't feel like two twelve-year-olds -- rather a sixteen-year-old and an eight-year-old. There was more of a feeling like Gretel having to take Hansel around everywhere she goes, and how that can impede one's own evolution, how our attachments and the things that we love can sometimes get in the way of our growth."

Beautifully shot garbage.
2 February 2020 | by pastorisaiahSee all my reviews

This movie LOOKS great. Seriously, great camera work, great production design, just a beautiful movie. It's a crying shame the story was so poorly written and the film so poorly directed and edited that the craftsmanship of the cinematography is lost. This is an ambitious story that, sadly, the director and writer weren't able to execute. There are a lot of ideas that aren't fleshed out, a lot of symbolism that is robbed of deeper meaning, and overall there is a story that doesn't get told. Which is a shame, because I feel like the story they WANTED to tell would have been very intriguing, but sadly they didn't know how to tell it. Maybe they can revisit this in a decade or two when they've learned their craft a bit more. I'd pay to see that.
