A house is not a home, it's a structure. And the lush, ornately decorated house in TALE OF TWO SISTERS is a very haunted structure indeed. In this celebrated classic of contemporary Korean cinema (originally titled "Rose Flower, Red Lotus," in reference to a particularly gruesome Korean ...Read more
