Tale of Tales

Once upon a time there were three neighboring kingdoms each with a magnificent castle, from which ruled kings and queens, princes and princesses. John C. Reilly and Salma Hayek lead the cast in this baroque fantasy that invites Game of Thrones comparisons.

One king was a fornicating libertine, another captivated by a strange animal, while one of the queens was obsessed by her wish for a child.

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.
