A few days ago we brought you the trailer, and today we have a series of eye-opening images from Matteo Garrone's Cannes competitor Tale of Tales

The fantasy epic, cast with a collection of American, French and Italian stars, feels very much like a throwback to the international co-productions of the 1960's and 70's, not least because of its seemingly laid-back attitude towards gore and sexuality, a facet sadly lost in the big-screen fantasy of recent years (though doubtlessly reinvigorated by the success of certain television show...). 

In any case, what matters here is the film at hand, and boy does it look promising. Director Matteo Garrone has previously focused his lens on the corrosive effects of the Neapolitan mafia (Gomorrah) and of celebrity culture/reality TV (Reality), so his turn towards the fantastic is both unexpected and highly intriguing. 

Check out the stills below and let us know what you think.
