Me and my sister... we have a past. A vid about Hansel and Gretel.

Notes: I have to admit this movie definitely isn't the greatest but if you like psychotically, irrationally, erotically codependent siblings then this movie delivers. And yes, that is a quote from Supernatural, which I blame for getting me interested codependent siblings in the first place.

I cut out a lot of the plot of the movies because, well, see the aforementioned not the greatest and just tried to focus on Hansel and Gretel's relationship. Which was an interesting exercise for me because I am normally very linear in my vids in relation to the original source. But I think it worked out well. Also, Hansel and Gretel stared at each other a lot.

Made for [livejournal.com profile] findthesea who I was glad to see was down with the implied incest!

In spite of the silliness of the movie you created a very sincere vid about the closeness of the siblings! :) Great work.

Thank you! Yes, the movie was incredibly silly. I am surprised I was left with enough serious clips after cutting them all out.

Hi - I loved this vid and would like to download a copy, but mediafire is currently blocking it, saying I can buy it on Amazon which is just a dirty lie, and the A03 link doesn't seem to work?

Sorry, try this link instead: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wv7ita3uz2i9was/hanselandgretel-fireproof-mithborien.avi

Turns out Mediafire randomly flagged a couple of my vids as "copyrighted" without actually notifying me. Also, I am incredibly late in setting up the AO3 links :S

But I am glad you like the vid :)

Thank you!!!

I must admit I was skeptical of the premise, but you so won me over - I had to go look up fic to read after to extend the experience ;) Total recruiter vid!

Don't know how I completely missed this during anon period. So glad I've watching it now though :)

I was a bit disappointed with the film - when I watched it I felt that it wasn't silly ENOUGH. Lol. I really did love the sibling dynamic though and you really made great use of what 'serious' footage there was to really make a very emotional and poignant vid. I suddenly want to watch the film again. What? You've vidded pure magic!
