Tales of the Night weaves together six exotic fables that unfold in unique locales - Tibet, medieval Europe, an Aztec kingdom, the African plains, and even the Land of the Dead. Michel Ocelot (Azur & Asmar) blends history with fairytale as viewers are whisked off to enchanted lands full of dragons, werewolves, captive princesses, sorcerers, and enormous talking bees - and each fable ends with its own ironic twist. The film uses silhouetted characters set against exquisitely detailed backgrounds bursting with color. The subtle use of 3D creates an enchanting diorama-like effect. French language with English subtitles (2K DCP–3D presentation, recommended for Ages 6 & up)
