Tale of Tales
Fantasy horror film adapting three tales by Neapolitan poet and courtier Giambattista Basile, written in the 1600s and influencing the likes of the Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Andersen.
Salma Hayek, Toby Jones, Vincent Cassel and John C. Reilly star, with director Matteo Garrone mixing realism with surrealism, bringing to life tales of necromancy, dragons, royals, virgins, fleas, ogres and transformation.
"Once upon a time there were three neighboring kingdoms each with a magnificent castle, from which ruled kings and queens, princes and princesses. One king was a fornicating libertine, another captivated by a strange animal, while one of the queens was obsessed by her wish for a child. Sorcerers and fairies, fearsome monsters, ogres and old washerwomen, acrobats and courtesans are the protagonists of this loose interpretation of the celebrated tales of Giambattista Basile."
