A Tale of Two Sisters is an unquestionably unnerving film, and from what I’ve seen, South Korean cinema seems to be quite dexterous when it comes to such trick. This one in particular is an unexpected fright fest, thankfully well spaced and hardly indulgent, which is what I like to see in a horror. Not only that but it strikingly acts as a disturbing and psychological beast of a horror, thought provoking all the way through with its dazzling pieces of suspense and perplexing events.
Despite its chocked full ending that could have been handled better, A Tale of Two Sisters is a deeply absorbing film with a heartfelt appreciation toward its two sisters. After all, this is their tale, and while it is tragic and mystifying, it’s a rather beautiful and compelling one to watch.
