Tales of the Night - Contes de la Nuit
Tales of the Night - Contes de la Nuit - From renowned animator and storyteller Michel Ocelot (Kirikou and the Sorceress, Azur & Asmar) comes a magical new film that is certain to delight children, families and animation fans of all ages. Silhouetted characters are set off against exquisitely detailed backgrounds bursting with color and kaleidoscopic patterns, as the film weaves together six exotic fables each unfolding in a unique locale, from Tibet, to medieval Europe, the African plains, and even the Land of the Dead. In Ocelot s celebrated storytelling, history blends with fairytale as viewers are whisked off to visit enchanted lands full of dragons, sorcerers, shape-shifting werewolves, captive princesses, and enormous talking bees--and each fable ends with its own ironic twist.
In French with optional English subtitles, 84 minutes. Region 1 for the U.S. and Canada.
