Tale of Tales, 2015.
Directed by Matteo Garrone.
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.
Matteo Garrone’s previous feature Reality seemed to find the Italian divulging his dreams of the surreal within the social-realism of modern Italy. With Tale of Tales – based upon the poet and scholar Giambattista Basile’s folk myths of the 16th century-Garrone has plunged head first into a murky pool chock-full of the surreal, heady erotica and fetishistic fancy dress.
