KBT Presents: A TALE OF TWO SISTERS


A Tale of Two Sisters is comfortably the best horror film to come out of the recent Asian horror boom, often referred to as J-Horror. Perhaps due to the wave of Japanese horror films which are constantly being remade in the United States (The Ring, Dark Water, Ju-On, Kaïro), I find it fitting that the 'best in show' is actually from South Korea, a country which has been experiencing such a vibrant explosion of cinema over the past several years.
A Tale of Two Sisters is based on a Korean folk tale, but set in modern times. It tells the story of twin girls, Bae Soo-mi and Bae Soo-yeon, who come to live with their father and step-mother at the cottage. The step mother is of course, of the wicked variety, who delights in torturing the girls both with an arched eyebrow, and a biting lecture. But this element of the story is not that simple. There is a ghost haunting the house, which true to J-Horror standards, is the black haired dead-girl made famous in Ringu. Things are not simple there either.
Like nearly all great horror pictures, there is a lot of things lurking beneath the surface of the story. Here, it is feminity, fertility, sexual maturation, and domestic territorial dominance. The film oozes with unspoken mind-games. The only man in the house is quite cuckolded.
Be washed over and enticed by the lush cinematography, lulled by the languid pace, unsettled in the best kind of way, and genuinely surprised by this modern masterpiece.

As this is somewhat of a celabration of the 30th KBT, come by at 8:00pm for a glass of Vintage Port, cheese and berries. Showtime at 8:30pm.
