Sea monsters, monarchs, ogres, kings and sorcerers: Tale of Tales is breathtaking Baroque fantasy from Italian filmmaker Matteo Garrone (this is his first English-language film).
Based on three spellbinding stories of magic and the macabre by Neapolitan poet and courtier Giambattista Basile, Tale of Tales
Overflowing with surreal, dazzling surprises, this intoxicating cinematic spectacle is a delirious excursion into the dark heart of fairy tales.
♦ Expect to be dazzled by lush cinematography, top-notch acting,
and some shocking turns. Tale of Tales is the most faithful and
creatively rendered fairytale onscreen to date, bizarrely satisfying and
totally worth a patient, focused viewing.
♦ Matteo Garrone’s Tale of Tales is fabulous in every sense. It is gloriously
mad, rigorously imagined, visually wonderful: erotic, hilarious and
internally consistent. A masterpiece of black-comic bad taste and a
positive carnival of transgression.”
