English Summary:

The Brothers Grimm is a 2005 adventure fantasy film directed by Terry Gilliam. The film stars Matt Damon, Heath Ledger, and Lena Headey in an exaggerated and fictitious portrait of the Brothers Grimm as traveling con-artists in French-occupied Germany, during the early 19th century. However, the brothers eventually encounter a genuine fairy tale curse which requires real courage instead of their usual bogus exorcisms. Supporting characters are played by Peter Stormare, Jonathan Pryce, and Monica Bellucci.

In 1811 French-occupied Germany, brothers Will and Jake Grimm are famed monster-hunters. Arriving in Karlstadt, they are hired to rid the town of a witch’s ghost, which they “kill” in an elaborate battle. In actuality, the Grimms are con artists who exploit local legends; with actors Hidlick and Bunst, they fabricate monsters to defeat for a price. Celebrating at an inn, the brothers are captured by Italian torturer Cavaldi and brought to French General Delatombe. In exchange for amnesty for their crimes, Delatombe tasks the brothers to solve the disappearance of several girls in Marbaden, believing charlatans like them are responsible.

In Marbaden, a huntress named Angelika leads the brothers, Cavaldi, and his men to a tower in the woods. She recalls her father’s story of the Thuringian Queen: Long ago, the Christian King Childeric I built a city in the forest, slaughtering the pagan locals; when the bubonic plague came, the queen sealed herself in the tower. Jake’s horse is cursed by a mysterious huntsman, and swallows a girl named Elsie alive when they return to town. Pursuing the horse into the forest, they are attacked by wolves – one of which seems to recognize Angelika – and by the forest itself; Cavaldi’s men are killed. Cavaldi brings Angelika and the Grimms to Delatombe, who orders their execution. In desperation, the brothers convince Delatombe that the magic in the forest is actually German rebels.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Will Grimm és testvére, Jake Grimm élete azzal telik, hogy faluról falura járván leküzdenek mindenféle, az útjukba - véletlenül vagy szándékosan - kerülő különös, nemegyszer természetfeletti szörnyetegeket, amelyek a helyi lakosság életére törnek... Vagy legalábbis ahogyan ügyfeleik hiszik a dolgokat. Mert igazság szerint a Grimm testvérek nem mások, mint sikeresen tevékenykedő szélhámosok, akik rendkívül okosan rendezik meg a különféle szellemek és fenevadak támadásait, hogy "semlegesítve" saját kreálmányaikat végül megfelelő pénzmennyiséget felmarkolva tűnjenek el a balfenéken. Egy nap a fivérek egy városkába érkeznek, ahol különös megrendelés vár rájuk: néhány helyi lakosból kell kiűzniük a beléjük költözött gonosz szellemeket. Will és Jake azonban egyvalamit nem tudnak, hogy a kis közösség lakóhelyét egy valódi elátkozott erdő határolja, és hogy fiatal lányok egymás után tűnnek el a félelmetes fák között. A Grimm testvéreknek ezért - feledve eddigi színészkedéseiket - életük védelmében villámgyorsan meg kell tanulniuk, hogyan kell kapcsolatba kerülni a valódi, fegyverként használható mágiákkal. Szerencsére azonban nem maradnak egyedül, mivel a bájos és rettenthetetlen Angelika szegődik melléjük az igazi szellemekkel vívott harcban.
