The Tale Of Tales is a film adaptation of a 17th century collection of fairy tales by Italian author Giambattista Basile. This is no sanitised or merchandised Disney twaddle however, the film is by Matteo Garrone and stars Salma Hayek , Vincent Cassel, John C. Reilly and Toby Jones.
The film weaves reality and fantasy together into three different storylines, which judging by the trailer involve eating the raw heart of a dragon, extravagent costumes and a fair bit of nudity. I’d have that over Disney any day…
This is a surreal trip of a trailer:
Tale of Tales will screen at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, where it’s in the running for a Palm D’Or
