Synopsis


Tales of the Night
Animator Michel Ocelot uses his trademark technique -- dark silhouettes against vividly colorful backdrops -- to spin tales of romance and adventure in this omnibus drama. In Les Contes de la Nuit (aka Tales Of The Night, a young actor and a veteran screenwriter exchange notes on a handful of story ideas that have caught their imagination, and over the course of the film six of their stories come to life, all classic tales in which a brave man comes to the rescue of a princess, though the outcomes of the stories sometimes run counter to expectations. The segments include the tale of a young man soon to wed who hides a terrible secret, powerful men putting a honest man to the test with a beautiful girl as bait, an adventurer who makes his way through the netherworld, and a gifted musician discovering his talents can do more than just entertain. Featuring the voice talents of Julien Beramis, Michel Elias, and Marine Griset, Tales Of The Night was an official selection at the 2011 Berlin Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    I first learned about this film online and saw other reviews for it. The art style/colour is breathtaking, but it's the characters and the stories themselves that totally blew me away. A definite must for fairy tale enthusiasts and lovers of foreign films.
