Gretel & Hansel

The authors of the fantasy horror film «Gretel and Hansel» with elements of the thriller offer their viewers to see a truly new version of one of the most famous and dark tales of the Brothers Grimm.

Events begin their development a long time ago, when ominous creatures inhabited the planet. At the center of the story is an ordinary sixteen-year-old girl, faced with many problems. She needs work to earn money for food for herself and her brother, but no one wants to take it to her. Desperate, she takes her eight-year-old brother with her to go on a journey through the fabulous countryside in search of work and food.

During the trip, brother and sister are not far from the dark forest. Having overcome fear, they decide to visit it. But Gretel and Hansel do not even suspect that a powerful and terrible evil witch lives in this place, living in the shadow of a dark tree. She already laid her eyes on the children. At the same time, a young hunter is at the forest.

This debut is, at first glance, a pretty standard movie about soul abduction and exorcism. However, an important change in the genre took place in it: the main character — the girl Kate from a Catholic boarding school — learns about the death of her parents and, not finding support in the nuns and neighbor Rose, gives her soul to the only creature ready to share her pain, the devil. In the end of the story, in spite of all the atrocities committed by her, a feeling of genuine compassion and understanding of a confused, useless person remained. Perkins also filled the less successful, but no less curious second work, «I Am Lovely, Living in the House» with a feeling of total loneliness of the protagonist (which is interesting, in all three films the central characters are female), however, there the director more comprehended his relationship with the deceased father.

His «Gretel and Hansel», although connected with the folklore heritage and echoes the classic fairy-tale plot, fits into the director’s system of values and views. At the center of the story are the same canonical brothers and sisters, whom their parents (in the case of a fresh adaptation — a crazy single mother) are driven out into the street to their fate. But before reaching the famous house of the evil witch (though this time it’s not such a gingerbread house), the heroes encounter the evil inhabitants of the forests, meet a hunter who tells them how to make money from bread, and eat hallucinogenic mushrooms.

Visually, the entire film resembles an unhealthy dream, where space can expand and contract, and visions of witches and dead children can replace reality. This, in general, is not exactly horror in the usual viewer’s sense: quite a bit exciting, frightening, or intense here. Perkins repeats the trick, which has already been successful twice: he pushes the viewer into a series of surreal inventive nightmares, psychological complexes of the protagonist, which he is unlikely to be able to get rid of, with a slow, almost unbearable narrative. If «February» and «I am the charm of living in a house» recommended Oz as a talented director, then «Gretel and Hansel» takes him to a new level — the level of stage director Ari Aster and Robert Eggers; an author who abruptly changes the rules of the game and speaks with genuine sincerity about human passions and fears in the generally accessible language of cinema. Obviously, this is not his most breakthrough film — but already here you can feel the special, unique look of a real artist.
