Tale of Tales

Italian director Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah) recruits Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones, John C. Reilly and Shirley Henderson to act out a collection of bizarro 16th-century European fairy tales. Blackly comic, beautifully wrought and definitely not for kids, this is grotesque fantasy in the most traditional sense of "decorative art characterized by fanciful or fantastic human and animal forms often interwoven with foliage or similar figures that may distort the natural into absurdity, ugliness or caricature." Think The Company of Wolves, Immoral Tales and Monty Python all smashed into one surreal stew. 133 minutes R.
