After young Hannibal is forced to watch his little sister, Mischa, being devoured by starving soldiers in his Lithuania homeland. Hannibal vows to avenge his sister's death by slaying those who committed not only war crimes against the Lecters, but also against other families during WW II. Hannibal's revenge plan includes his cannibalism to justify his insatiable appetite for human flesh. Hannibal excels in his medical school classes dissecting cadavers. Complications arise when Hannibal interacts with his sexy Aunt, Lady Murasaki. Murasaki educates him in the art of beheading and Hannibal learns to that his sword fetish is a manifestation of physical lust.

Very different than the others, but we liked it. A bit difficult to follow and not sure it fits the description about the movie. I would suspect there will be a lot of different takes on this one but for us it was great, a lot of action and revenge is always sweet.

This was very interesting for me, since I have seen the other movies in the Hannibal story. It's true it's not as gruesome as the others but I believe that's because this movie explains how Hannibal became who he was known to be later: an insane yet intelligent, manipulative killer. I am also madly in love with Gaspard Ulliel.
