Brilliant adaptation of the Little Red Riding Hood tale fused with the werewolf myth. Amazing imagery translate an intriguing story of coming of age, sexuality and the animal within. A young girl is drawn into a folklore past when she falls asleep. Here her grandmother tells her the cautionary tales of men she should avoid - men with eyebrows that meet and are “hairy on the inside”. An absolute must-see, still great since its 1984 release (when it received four BAFTA nominations).
