A retelling of the Hansel and Gretel tale through a tacky tabloid lens and a distinct anti-authority vibe, this early Ozon film is sensationalistic by design. Teenage Alice (Régnier) convinces her boyfriend to murder her lover, but after the deed is done they’re both trapped by a strange old man in his cabin in the woods.
