Tale Of Tales (15)


Matteo Garrone | Italy, France, UK | 2015 | 133’

Beautifully shot, with a spine-tingling soundtrack by composer Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel), this is a lavish, seductive and macabre re­telling of Giambattista Basile’s Italian fairy tales. Three fantastical stories include a queen (Salma Hayek) who gives birth after eating a sea monster’s heart, an old peasant woman who finds youth after falling asleep in an enchanted forest and a king who raises a flea as his child, tales that your parents never dared tell you. Breath-taking cinematic escapism.
