Tale of Tales (2015)
Viewing Jan '19 ///
Matteo Garrone clinically dissects female desire in a way previously unseen within the boundaries of the fantastical surroundings that the film boasts. Taking note of many fairytale tropes, Tale of Tales has taken the cinderella story and twisted it demonically into multiple iterations of the same moral “be careful what you wish for”. Haunting imagery shines out, catches you by surprise and will certainly be a lasting memory of a film that has truly delivered in its ambition.
