Inspired by the Grimms Fairy Tale, Jorinda and Joringel is a story about star-crossed lovers who are ensnared in the trap of a sensual witch. Shot in a silent-movie style, the film blends the mystery of a Maya Deren film with the beauty of a German Expressionist silent film.
Jorinda and Joringel:
J&J :A Grimm's fairy tale of two lovers separated by magic and lust. A seductive,"silent" movie, with stunning visuals
and a brilliant musical score that ranges from gently haunting to horrifying in one half-hour.
The centerpiece of the collection, however, is undoubtedly "Jorinda and Joringel," a Brothers Grimm fable adapted
as a sexually charged gothic fantasy about a handsome prince's struggle to rescue his betrothed from the clutches of an evil witch. Come to
think of it, you could add "sexually charged gothic fantasy" to the list of constants linking these films._ -Film Threat Magazine
