Tale of Tales SALMA AS OBSESSED QUEEN AROMA
Something you should know about fairytales
Salma as obsessed Queen, a woman who does everything to get a child and as a mother who doesn´t want to understand the fallout.
Very medival in every szene.
Salma als besssene Königin, als Frau die alles dafür tut ein Kind zu bekommen und als Mutter die Konsequenzen nicht verstehen will.
Bilder die ins Mittelalter versetzen.
good review and all you need to know about fairytales:
Garrone takes the stories at their original meaning. His film is neither post-modern nor even modern. It's medieval. With starkly enigmatic, but beautifully wrought and filigree imagery, with a dark cutting humour which is bleak rather than ironic, Garrone is not interested in touching our hearts or giving us a comfortable moral. Rather his fables scrape bare human weakness and reveal the cruelty and the cost that must be paid. Consequences are laid out by a grim reaper like figure, who turns up at the court assuring the royals that a price must be paid. Deals are made with eyes open and the universe is an unforgiving place.
