About Grimm (TV Show)

Grimm is a 2003 comedy drama film directed by Alex van Warmerdam, inspired by (but deviating heavily from) The Brothers Grimm story 'Brother and Sister' and incorporating contemporary urban legends, such as that of the kidney heist. A brother and sister, Jacob and Marie, live with their father and mother. The family is in a situation where living becomes difficult for them. One day Jacob and Marie's father abandons the two of them in woods while they go collecting firewood. From that moment on, the two teens must fend for themselves, fighting off rape and taking on any possible situation, reacting to situations as if animals. Their mother put a note in Jacob's jacket telling them to go to their aunt and uncle in Spain, but they arrive to find them both deceased in an accident. Not sure what to do, Jacob, feeling hungry, goes to buy a roll, and finds a note left by Marie that she has gone off to marry a rich man named Diego.
