The Brothers Grimm (29-Jul-2005)

Director: Terry Gilliam

Writer: Ehren Kruger

Keywords: Fantasy

Two traveling con artists making their trade off false "exorcisms" happen upon an all-too-real curse requiring actual courage to overcome.

Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm, folklore collectors and con artists sustaining themselves through the performance of bogus "exorcisms" and other feats of apparent paranormal-fighting strength, arrive in the French-occupied German town of Karlstadt in the early nineteenth century to exterminate a witch's ghost terrorizing the area. A short celebration following the "success" of their endeavor is interrupted by French general Delatombe's soliciting them to investigate a fairytale curse propagated by a real supernatural force, requiring our pair to display true skill and courage if they are to succeed and avoid being exposed as flim-flam men.
