Some Good Some Bad
17 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Tales of the Night is a 2011 French computer silhouette animation feature film directed by Michel Ocelot. I didn't see it in its 3D theatrical release... so no comment on that.

A girl, a boy and an old cinema technician create stories using a machine. They then perform each story. The six stories are all clunky dialog clunky world culture tales.

I likes some of the stories more than others. But for better or worst, they have the feeling of unsophisticated old fairy tales. The gimmick of the old cinema machine to lead into each story just isn't worth the time. And I have to say it diminishes the stories if they just make it up. It'd be better if they made it as some kind of cultural discovery like the Grimm brothers.

The style of animation also don't give the facial expressions needed for emotional depths. But it gets some cool points and fits the naive stories.
