Tales of the Night weaves together six exotic fables each unfolding in a unique locale, from Tibet, to medieval Europe, to the Land of the Dead. From the imagination of internationally renowned animator Michel Ocelot.
Much to his surprise, an utter misanthrope is transformed into a reluctant do-gooder, when a glorious pair of angelic snow-white wings sprouts up from his back. Now, everyone in town wants a piece of his feathered appendages.
Cruel, and utterly effective, Peter Foldes' experimentation with computer animation employs a bold speechless narrative to draw attention to the grave effects of consumerism. Who needs ethics when everything is within arm's reach?
Whether or not the story was a great one, the visual portrayal of the era described was so interesting. The film is entirely made from lace images. The motion is made by turning wheels of lace and doing other things to create conflict. The story of the three inventors is a sort of fantasy and it comes off quite well.
