Tale of Tales (15)

Hailed as a masterpiece at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, Tale of Tales is a sumptuous, seductive and macabre re-telling of Giambattista Basile’s classic Italian fairy tales by renowned director Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah, Reality).

Comprising three wildly fantastical stories, including a queen 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 proud king who raises a flea as his child, these are tales that your parents never dared tell you. Set in an epic landscape filled with a host of bizarre characters this outlandish, grotesque and beguiling fantasy world is like nothing you’ve seen before. Gloriously shot, with a spine-tingling soundtrack by Oscar-winning composer Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Rust & Bone), Tale of Tales is a lavish production, deliciously dark, wickedly funny and outrageously entertaining,
