(mbc.net) Before Hannibal Lecter (Gaspard Ulliel) was a psychotic, cannibalistic, serial killer he was an ordinary boy, growing up in Lithuania during World War II.  The Lecter family was wealthy, and resided in a large castle -- that was unfortunately overrun by Soviet troops.  Hannibal's entire family, including his toddler-aged sister would be killed right before his eyes; the latter was cannibalized in his presence, initiating his lifelong hunger for human flesh.

After the war he sought refuge with his aunt in Paris, where he would attend medical school and excel in his academics.  He would also seek revenge against the men who killed his family. 

Hannibal Rising was a commercial success, garnering $82 million at the box office.
