Plot

PlotCanada British English Canadian Flag icon

Once upon a time there were three neighboring kingdoms each with a magnificent castle, from which ruled kings and queens, princes and princesses.tale_of_tales

One king was a fornicating libertine, another captivated by a strange animal, while one of the queens was obsessed by her wish for a child.

Sorcerers and fairies, fearsome monsters, ogres and old washerwomen, acrobats and courtesans are the protagonists of this loose interpretation of the celebrated tales of Giambattista Basile.

 

Trama

Tramaitalian Flag icon

C’era una volta un regno, anzi tre regni vicini e senza tempo, dove vivevano, nei loro castelli, re e regine, principi e principesse.

Un re libertino e dissoluto. Una principessa data in sposa ad un orribile orco. Una regina ossessionata dal desiderio di un figlio.

Accanto a loro maghi, streghe e terribili mostri, saltimbanchi, cortigiani e vecchie lavandaie sono gli eroi di questa libera interpretazione di tre delle celebri fiabe tratte da Il Racconto dei Racconti di Giambattista Basile.
