Tales Of The Night is a wonderfully unique visual experience; its animation is stunning and quite stylised. I was impressed simply by the look of this film, it is wonderfully crafted from the get go.
The story here is a simple one, it features three friends in a Parisian theatre who come up with stories and act them out. You have a boy, a girl and an elderly man, each who shares an equal love for storytelling and theatre. There are six stories told, re-imaged fables and fairy tales, each with their own unique look and moral at the end.
While the moral of each story is nothing new, it is the way they are told and presented that is the delight. There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking an idea and reworking it into something fresh and entertaining (after all isn’t that what say George Lucas did with the original Star Wars trilogy?). I wont reveal what the stories or the moral’s are, it is fun to discover that for yourself. The in-between scenes, cutting between the stories are fun as we see the trio brainstorm.
