The Tales of Hoffmann

United Kingdom | 1951 | Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

The Tales of Hoffmann

To say that Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s film adaptation of Jacques Offenbach’s operetta is their most colorful, lavish, and over-the-top film is saying a lot; this was the team that previously made Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes, and A Matter of Life and Death (aka Stairway to Heaven)! Moira Shearer of The Red Shoes also stars in this bold, sensuous, and sometimes bonkers fusion of music, dance, and cinema that tells three fantastical stories of lost love, bookended by a prologue and an epilogue. This new restoration, aside from looking good, is also the most complete version of the movie you’ll ever see. Sir Thomas Beecham conducts the score. “The movie that made me want to make movies! My favorite film of all time!” –George Romero. “The pinnacle of cinematic art.” -Wall St. Journal. “Five stars (highest rating)…A dream for lovers of pure spectacle.” –Time Out. “You have to see it to believe it.” –The L.A. Times.
