Jake (Taplitz), a 13 year old aspiring artist, moves to Brooklyn with his parents (Kinnear, Ehle) to occupy the apartment of his deceased grandfather, where he befriends Tony (Barbieri).

Tale of Tales

  • 2 stars
  • 2015
  • Italy/France/UK
  • 125 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Matteo Garrone
  • Cast: Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, John C. Reilly, Toby Jones

Sprawling interpretations of 17th century Neapolitan fairytales, with stories unfolding in three neighbouring kingdoms. Visually spectacular and with a fine cast (Hayek, Jones, Cassel) giving committed performances, it's undone by a lack of cohesion and ends up less than the sum of its parts.
