Written and directed by Alex van Warmerdam, Grimm is an absurdist, decidedly black take on the Hansel and Gretel story, as two Dutch teens hit the dangerous road after their mother sends them to Spain in search of their uncle.

Another dark masterpiece from Dutch master Alex Van Warmerdam. Abusive parents and incestuous relationships, deception and kidnapping, class struggle and social engineering, gas stations and movie sets, Spanish vs. Dutch cultural rivalries, simulacra and fairy tales. What's not to love?
