Tale of Tales
Directed by Matteo Garrone
Inspired by the celebrated fairytales by Giambattista Basile, Matteo Garrone’s TALE OF TALES is an epic vision of cinema. From the bitter quest of the Queen of Longtrellis (Salma Hayek) who forfeits the life of her husband (John C. Reilly), to two mysterious sisters who provoke the passion of the King of Strongcliff (Vincent Cassel), to the King of Highhills obsessed with a giant Flea (Toby Jones) leading to heartbreak for his young daughter, these stories weave the beautiful with the grotesque, creating a stunning and unique work of gothic imagination.
The film interweaves three separate story strands bookended by brief bits in which involves a street circus family, a jealous queen who forfeits her husband's life, and a king whose passion is stoked by two mysterious sisters.
Cast: Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones, John C. Reilly, Shirley Henderson
I really loved this movie it was twisted and dark. I really enjoyed the tales
Loved it. I don't care if it wasn't a horror, it was a damn good movie. Strong actors, fantastic visuals and an all around entertaining watch.
Good actors, 3 stories in one hard to decide wether 3 or 4 stars. I’ll be kind though
really weird, but i liked it a lot, the visuals are amazing.
