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, are abandoned in the woods by their father while collecting firewood. From that moment on, the two teens must fend for themselves, fighting off rape and taking 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 of 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. Jacob arrives at the house, ominous in spite of the brightness, and finds much to distrust in Diego.
