Grimm tales and beautiful people are on the bill in Venice at the world’s oldest film festival with a multi million euro extravaganza from Terry Gilliam vying for the coveted Golden Lion award.

“The Brothers Grimm” stars Italian beauty Monica Bellucci, the US’s Matt Damon and Australia’s Heath Ledger. It tells the story of the two brothers who roam the countryside preying on superstitious villagers who fall for their tricks or charms. They meet their match when they come up against the Mirror Queen, played by Bellucci, who will stop at nothing to attain eternal beauty.
