Tales of the Night is renowned animation auteur Michel Ocelot (Kirikou and the Sorceress, Azur & Asmar)'s first foray into 3D animation. A hit at the Berlin Film Festival, the film extends the earlier shadow puppet style of Ocelot’s Princes and Princesses, with black silhouetted characters set off against exquisitely detailed Day-Glo backgrounds bursting with color and kaleidoscopic patterns – the subtle use of 3D creating a diorama-like effect. The film weaves together six exotic fables each unfolding in a unique locale, from Tibet, to medieval Europe, an Aztec kingdom, the African plains, and even the Land of the Dead. In Ocelot’s storytelling, history blends with fairytale as viewers are whisked off to enchanted lands full of dragons, werewolves, captive princesses, sorcerers, and enormous talking bees - and each fable ends with its own ironic twist.

Tim S (br) wrote: Zorro, the Gay Blade is one of the most enjoyable spoof comedies I've seen in quite sometime. It isn't a spoof in the usual sense, but more of a send-up than anything. This is a movie that I saw pieces of when I was a kid but didn't see it in full until I was an adult, and I almost wish I had seen it sooner. It's quite hilarious. The entire cast is perfect in their roles and everybody manages to get a belly laugh from me. George Hamilton is amazing in his dual role as Don Diego Vega and his gay twin brother Bunny Wigglesworth, both of whom don the the mask of Zorro. The film also has a terrific supporting cast, including Lauren Hutton, Brenda Vaccaro, and Ron Liebman, as well as small roles for Frank Welker and Clive Revill. It's a beautiful movie, as well, with lush colors and landscapes, as well as some terrific sword fights and action set pieces. The comedy shines through, of course, and the characters are quite strong. It's a movie that's easy to fall in love with, whether you're a fan of Zorro or not. Definitely one to check out.

Filled with some great scenes there are some uneven/unbalanced ones.Some & the theories & scenes in this film are a little far fetched but overall it is very entertaining.
Luca Maria M (it) wrote: A poetical movie about how fantasy help children escaping the world. It seems a mix between The Neverending Story and Labyrinth (two movies i love, anyway, so it's a good thing to me). You have to watch it with child eyes and accept that the story is not totally logical (as it wouldn't be in a fairy tale or better in a child fantasy) and that at times the movie is a bit weird and even nightmarish. A metaphor, more than a movie, but very heartfelt and sweet.
