12. The Brothers Grimm (2005)
Terry Gilliam takes the plunge into a dark adventure through the fantastical woods of traditional tales, by directing this fantasy film starring Matt Damon and Heath Ledger. Set in the early 19th Century, it follows the story of two brothers, an imaginative portrait of the folklore authors Grimm, who here, are con-artists, traveling through the lands of Germany. While their business is usually about setting up fake witches and ghosts themselves in order to then “defeat” them and fill their pockets with rewards, it reaches a stop when encountering a village that is truly under a magical curse, as the female villagers are slowly disappearing and leaving a mystery unsolved. Although flawed, it gives us an exciting mix of tales, through iconic elements we all recognize, in between the walls of a comedic and adventurous narrative.
