Dir: Matteo Garrone | Italy / France / UK | 2015 | 134 mins
Cast: Salma Hayek, John C. Reilly, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones, Shirley Henderson

Salma Hayek, John C. Reilly and Vincent Cassel star in Gomorrah director Matteo Garrone’s superlative, surreal English language debut. Inspired by seventeenth-century Neapolitan fairytales, it sees a king and queen (Reilly and Hayek) seeking gruesome advice from a sorcerer; another monarch (Toby Jones) nursing a pet until it grows alarmingly in size; and Cassel’s sex-obsessed leader tricked into an undesirable tryst… Deliriously inventive.

“Matteo Garrone’s Tale of Tales is fabulous in every sense […] gloriously mad, rigorously imagined, visually wonderful” ***** Peter Bradshaw
