The Tales of Hoffmann, GFT Sun 8 March, Tues 10 March, 2015


Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger were among the most audacious, visionary filmmakers in British cinema history. A glorious 4K restoration of The Tales of Hoffmann with previously unseen footage offers breathtaking testimony of their dazzling visual imagination and boundless artistic daring. Their Oscar-nominated adaptation of Offenbach’s opera is a feverish swirl of colour and intense emotion as the poet Hoffmann recalls the three great loves of his life and how unbearable sadness inspires the most sublime artistry. A firm favourite of Martin Scorsese that begs to be seen on a cinema screen.
