This action film revolves around the adventures of Jake and Will Grimm, con artists who travel from village to village in 19th century Germany pretending to protect townsfolk from enchanted creatures and performing exorcisms to make money. Everything changes when they arrive at the village of Marbaden, where several little girls have vanished, and the two brothers must face real magical beings. As a tribute to the true Brothers Grimm, this film is full of allusions to classic fairy tales like Cinderella and Hansel and Gretel.
Dr. Parnassus, an immortal who made a pact with the devil, takes his traveling theater company to the street offering a marvelous spectacle: entering an imaginary world where dreams come true. No one knows that every person who enters the imaginery world is forced to confront the devil and choose between good and evil. Nor does anyone know that because of an old bet, the immortal man’s daughter will soon become the devil’s property. In an attempt to save her, he makes another bet: the first one to seduce five souls will be able to keep her.
