Tell A Fairy Tale Day

Happy Tell a Fairy Tale Day!

Tales of the Night

The enduring appeal of fairy tales makes them as popular as ever.

Les Contes de la Nuit, or Tales of the Night is a silhouette animation film directed by Michel Ocelot that came out in 2011. These silhouettes remind me of the style of Lotte Reiniger.

There are six separate tales depicted:

  1. The Werewolf
  2. Tijean and Beauty-Not-Knowing
  3. The Chosen One and The City Of Gold
  4. The Boy Tam-Tam
  5. The Boy Who Never Lied
  6. The Girl-Doe and the Architect’s Son

Here’s the trailer to Les Contes de la Nuit:
