YesAsia Editorial Description

Having already showed his flair for horror in the Korea-Thai-Hong Kong joint production Three (2002), Korean director Kim Jee Woon chooses an old Joseon Dynasty tale called Janghwa Hongryeon as his inspiration for the 2003 psycho-thriller A Tale of Two Sisters. Shocking the world with this deathly pallor of the family drama and the sheer panic of impending horror, A Tale of Two Sisters not only enjoyed success in Asia, but also attracted the attention of Hollywood. DreamWorks, one of the biggest Hollywood movie studios, has an American remake planned.

After stints in a mental hospital, Su Mi (Lim Soo Jung, ...ing) and Su Yeon (Moon Geun Young, My Little Bride), two sisters from a rich family, move in with their eccentric stepmother, only to find their conditions worsened thanks to an unbalanced parental figure and a pesky ghost. Su Yeon has nightmares about her mother's death and relies on her older sister for emotional protection. The new stepmother dreams of a perfect family and treats her two stepdaughters with both manic affection and frightening frostiness. The father observes taciturnly and remains isolated.

To make matters worse for this dysfunctional family, otherworldly horrors lurk at every corner. A ghost crawls behind a clothing trunk, a freakish woman hides under the sink, and a bloody sack containing a corpse leaves a trail of red on the wooden floor. Are these specters real or just hallucinations? And who is the real ghost?

This edition includes making-of, interviews, deleted scenes and other special features.

숨겨진 가족의 비밀, 드러나는 공포의 실체

수연.수미 자매가 서울에서 오랜 요양을 마치고 돌아 오던 날. 새엄마 은주는 눈에 띄게 아이들을 반기지만, 자매는 그녀를 꺼리는 기색이 역력하다. 함께 살게 된 첫날부터 집안에는 이상한 기운이 감돌고 가족들은 환영을 보거나 악몽에 시달린다. 수미는 죽은 엄마를 대신해 아버지 무현과 동생 수연을 손수 챙기려 들고, 생모를 똑 닮은 수연은 늘 겁에 질려 있다. 신경이 예민한 은주는 그런 두 자매와 번번히 다투게 되고, 아버지 무현은 그들의 불화를 그저 관망만 한다. 은주는 정서불안 증세를 보이며 집안을 공포 분위기로 몰아가고, 동생을 지키기 위해 안간힘을 쓰는 수미가 이에 맞서는 가운데, 집안 곳곳에서 괴이한 일들이 잇달아 벌어지는데…

Dont waste your money Customer Review Rated Bad 2 - 2 out of 10
Boring and not scary at all. Don't waste your money. Rent it at blockbuster instead if you're curious.

BEAUTIFUL AND ENCHANTING Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I watched it yesterday and I'm still under impression. "A Tale of Two Sisters" is very beautiful, accurately-paced, thrilling and magic picture. The plot is rather complicated and I can tell only the beginning: two sisters return to their father and stepmother from a mental home. Everyone is acting rather strange - one of the sisters is very timid and browbeaten, the other one is impudent and brash. Father is self-contained and we can not understand what's on his mind. Stepmom seems way over happy for her stepdaughters' arrival but later we see everything is not exactly as it seems. Soon some strange thing begin to happen in the house...
Movie's events are intricate and it's possible that after watching it you'd want to watch it for the second time to understand all. And even after that I'm not sure you'll have an unambigous explanation.
"A Tale of Two Sisters" is one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. You can't take your eyes off the screen because it's just gorgeous like a flower. Actually this film reminded me of some splendid porcelain vase which you have to be careful with not to break. It has the accurate choice of colours, every frame is so precise and measured you just hold your breath and watch in admiration. Without any questions I'd call this film a real piece of high art. I think you'll be watching it repeatedly finding hidden meanings and hints. This edition will be a true jewel in your collection.

Thriller Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
A must see suspense thriller movie. You need to really focus on this film otherwise, you'll get lost. The girls are really great especially the girl who acted with Kim Rae Won in ..ing movie.

Indeed, a movie to watch. Just hope the British movie outfit who bought the rights do justice in this movie re-make.

A HORROR MASTERPIECE !!!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This was the first korean horror i had the great pleasure indulging myself in and to date it is the most gripping, frightening, intelligent and interesting horror i've seen. The music is surreal and beautiful, full of suspence, and at times I found myself lost in it. As far as the story goes there is a lot to wrap your mind around but you get ample time to do it in, however i would recommend seeing this movie a few times, once you have you realize that every detail is critical to the overall story and it all adds up wonderfully, which is rare for storylines in most horrors where throwing loads of screaming girls and buckets of blood in seem to be enough for most horror fans, however, as well as being very psychological there are some seriously frightening and deeply suspensful sections which are very realistic and hard to watch, the effects are excellent. I have seen 'Phone', 'ring', 'the grudge', 'Bunshinsaba' and many other great asian horrors, so if you are a fan or a first timer of asian horrors it would be a crime to let this masterpiece pass you by!!!!

I see why people gave low point.. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This movie can be very confusing but if you understand this movie, it can be the best movie you've ever seen.
I can't actually explain all parts of the movie cuz some people didn't watch it yet.
If you e-mail me or something than I will explain for you. I'm just so sad that people don't like this movie because they don't understand...
