In this fairy tale anthology, director Matteo Garrone weaves together 17th century Neapolitan folk stories that spur both laughter and fear. The Enchanted Doe, The Flea and The Flayed Old Lady make up this film that features performances by Salma Hayek, John C. Reilly, Toby Jones and Vincent Cassel.

Invoking hints of Tim Burton, this concoction competed at Cannes in 2015 and is geared towards adults who long for a dark twist on fairy tale storytelling.
