Not only the anniversary of the famous fairy tale by the Grimm Brothers or the success in the United States, but most of all the superb cast drew Veronika and me to the cinema yesterday to find out what the craze is all about!
I got exactly what was promised in the trailer! A very dark and dirty, drastic and dusky transformation of the 200 year old story. I enjoyed the grown-up version and appreciate the courage to cater a target group from teenagers to mid-thirties!
Sometimes, though, the script lacked some logic and consistency and quite some parts made you laugh without the purpose of being funny! However, the cast is chosen exceptionally well, the story is changed in quite a pleasant manner, the music is well composed and the locations and settings always give you something stunning to watch!
Watch it. But don’t take it too seriously; at least, not all the time :)
