After a spell in a psychiatric hospital, two girls returned to their home where, unfortunately, things slow to get worse, and therefore many may be the cause: a bad psychological situation of girls, the uterus with the hard face, enigmatic father, while not slow to realize that they are the only instances in the house ...

This film boomed during the peak of Asian horror dramas in the world. And yes, A Tale of Two Sisters is something. Freakingly good, it was. This proved that Koreans aren't just for romantic comedies. They could also compete with Japan's psychotic films. :)

The film risks a typical basic structure of the drama (the initial time to engage with the characters, and then walk the last of the story, as with the audience caring about what they are seeing). But the result was a flop, since all the first time in connection with the characters is undermined by horror without rhythm and just sprinkled in are mostly long shots, trying to build an atmosphere of ... read more

Description: Something strange is happening when Su-mi and her younger sister Su-yeon come home to their father's large, but dark and somewhat foreboding house after a stay in the hospital. Their dad is taciturn and burdened and their step-mother, Eun-joo greets them with forced enthusiasm and more than a little sense of irritation. But that's not ... (more)

Misery Fest: Movies that leave you depressed (25 movies items)

"A fairly well known movie among Korean horror film watchers. This movie, like its title suggests, is about two sisters. However, it's not really a horror film. At least, it's not one of those "monster gonna get you" horror films with a paper thin plot. This movie actually communicates themes on multiple levels, and deals with fatherhood, motherhood, infidelity, insanity, neglect, and wrongful death. Although not soul damaging, this movie definitely leaves a palpable trace of depression in its wa"

"Watched 5/14/12 The scariest movie (for me) in recent memory. Great atmosphere and acting, even though they did overuse the "heavy breathing" in some parts."

A Tale of Two Sisters (Janghwa, Hongryeon) (2003)

“All this movie score can be obtained due to its unique visual bill, typical of oriental horror productions, full of imagery and unsettling atmospheres. But the script is leaking everywhere, repeating situations and making the main character suggestion, without resolution, end and, worse, no intelligibility. The inevitable violence of South Korean films and brand director, Kim Jee-woon. Confused mother and stepmother, and sister living or sister dead: no female character that can not impersonate another like pieces of a puzzle unsolvable. The only thing that saves this section is the only male, the father. Here, the film is a good skill points: given the complexity feminine men are more than just.

If tomorrow I were asked by the plot of the movie would cost me something to respo” read more

"9.1 Alkuvuodesta ei hirveästi tule katseltua, kun on X-files putki päällä. SISÄLTÄÄ SPOILEREITA Päällimmäisenä jäi mieleen elokuvan visuaalinen toteutus, joka onnistuu olemaan paikoitellen todella kaunis, mutta tarvittaessa saa katsojaan myös erittäin kylmän ja kolkon tunteen luotua. Ei ole ihan sitä perinteistä kauhua mitä aasiasta olen tottunut näkemään, vaan Tale Of Two Sisters kätkee pintansa alle jotain paljon enemmän, mikä ei ainakaan minulle edes auennut ensimm"
