Based on a famous Korean folktale, A Tale of Two sisters is a stylish and chilling South Korean psychological drama with horror elements. The plot is absolutely clever and complex, but it may require repeated viewings to truly appreciate it.

The direction is also brilliant, packed with strong performances, a mesmerizing cinematography and a creative, almost poetic, camerawork. The use of colour is simply perfect, contributing to the film grim and gothic atmosphere.
