Garrone's film is a feast for the eyes and mind. It draws liberally from the tradition of ancient fairy Basile and proposes a translation blazing, made solemn landscapes and disturbing, kings and courts who are living with the misery of the people, crenellated castles that stand out on the slopes oblivious of the course of time and a set of -draghi mythological creatures, orcs, witches, fleas Gian... read more

For a while Tale of Tales plays out with the free-associative logic of a fairy tale and provides sequences that in an American film would lead to bombast with quiet emotional urgency.

That is, the film runs out of gas long before the final... read more

From the bitter quest of the Queen of Longtrellis, to two mysterious sisters who provoke the passion of a king, to the King of Highhills obsessed with a giant Flea, these tales are inspired by the fairytales by Giambattista Basile.

" Familiar Actors: Salma Hayek Vincent Cassel Toby Jones John C. Reilly Shirley Henderson Stacy Martin and Jessie Cave True Rating: 6.2/10 Body Count: 10 Notes: It's long, weird, and a bit of a slow burn. Still it's a pretty interesting idea with an excellent cast."

“For a while Tale of Tales plays out with the free-associative logic of a fairy tale and provides sequences that in an American film would lead to bombast with quiet emotional urgency. This is when the film is operating at its best, but then a certain thinness begins to undermine the film’s triptych of stories and their corresponding images. That is, the film runs out of gas long before the final credits are rolling.   The three tales told here are eventually revealed as being interwoven in intimate and unique ways, but the crosscutting between them feels arbitrary at best. At its worst, the stories intrude all over each other’s emotional rhythms and textures, and I wonder if this could be reedited to have the films work more in concert with each other. There are clear parallels in ” read more
