Based on the fairytales of Giambattista Basile, 'Tale of Tales' has been the buzz of Cannes with its rich storytelling, outstanding performances, and lush cinematography. It features a Spanish queen obsessed with bearing a son, an oversexed king in search of love, a skin-changing queen, and a delinquent king intent on raising a pet flea.
