Happy Tell a Fairy Tale Day!
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:
- The Werewolf
- Tijean and Beauty-Not-Knowing
- The Chosen One and The City Of Gold
- The Boy Tam-Tam
- The Boy Who Never Lied
- The Girl-Doe and the Architect’s Son
Here’s the trailer to Les Contes de la Nuit:
