Inspired by the fairytales of medieval Naples, Tale of Tales, which competed at Cannes, is an epic vision of cinema. From the bitter quest of a jealous Queen who forfeits the life of her husband, to two mysterious sisters who provoke the passion of a King, to a King obsessed with a giant Flea leading to heartbreak for his young daughter, these stories weave the beautiful with the grotesque, creating a stunning and unique work of gothic imagination. Sorcerers and fairies, fearsome monsters, ogres and old washerwomen, acrobats and courtesans are the protagonists of this loose interpretation of the celebrated tales of Giambattista Basile.
