A Tale of Two Sisters 2003

Terror oriental é sempre interessante por abordar o lado psicologico e deixar o espectador com medo e claro muitas perguntas, bom filme.

This is an artsy South Korean variation of 'The Sixth Sense', but with an extra dash of ambiguity, and lacking a bold, confident plot.

Where the screenplay for 'The Sixth Sense' was an expertly woven tapestry that begged for a repeat viewing to appreciate the genius of its warp and weft, the narrative of 'A Tale of Two Sisters' isn't so tightly woven. There are a lot of short, ambiguous scenes, and the audience is left to determine for themselves which parts of the story are real, which are dreams, and which are outright delusions. It becomes somewhat tedious, trying to sort everything that happens in this film into each of these three categories.

Even so, this is a fun little psychological thriller / ghost story... but one gets the feeling that pulling one loose plot thread might cause the whole thing to collapse.

I very much liked how the movie put everything together towards the end. The plot twist is also great, but it is not enough to justify a recommendation. The "horror" elements are poor, and at times it felt like a chore watching.
