In three parts, with multiple stories, Portuguese director Miguel Gomes' epic 'Arabian Nights' was easily the most original, ambitious - and most critically acclaimed - film at Cannes this year. In the first part Scheherazade tells the restlessness that befell the country: "It hath reached me, O auspicious King, that in a sad country where people dream of mermaids and whales, unemployment spreads."
