Matteo garrone

tale of tales

Last week the official selection of the 68th Cannes festival was revealed. From the amazing bunch of filmmakers competing for the Palme d’Or, there is Matteo Garrone, the incredible Italian filmmaker who already won two prizes at the prestigious festival in the past: le prix du Jury with “Gomorra” in 2008 and in 2012 with “Reality”. He will be back this year with his latest movie “Tale of Tales” (Il Racconto dei Racconti). Better not expect a cute fairy-tale where everything ends up well.

The film revisits the work of Italian poet Giambattista Basile, and the trailer itself looks very promising, indeed. “Tale Of Tales“ stars Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones, John C. Reilly and Stacy Martin.
