     French animator Michel Ocelot may lack the marketing appeal of a certain mouse but his movies cast more enchantments than a month at Disneyland, Paris.

     Tales Of The Night is an anthology of  little known silhouette folktales, imagined by would-be moviemakers against a jewel bright backdrop of ancient and exotic locations.

     The roots of familiar stories lurk beneath the strange beauty of Ocelot’s shadow theatre in a primal and dangerous form; cunning and tenacity are worth more than might, princess brides are not what they seem, animals speak, werewolves roam and Happy Ever Afters have a high price.

     Children used to big-eyed cuteness and easy moralising will be entranced, while grown-ups will feel like children all over again.

Verdict ~ Lovely, hypnotic and bizarre.

If you enjoy silhouette animation click here to watch Lotte Reiniger’s Cinderella in full..
