Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Tale of Tales is an anthology based on old Italian fairy tales, but it's not for kids! Violence and sexual content are both strong -- several women appear topless, and there are a couple of steamy sex scenes and a character with many lovers. On the gory side of things, there's quite a bit of blood, and an ogre attacks and kills several characters, snapping their necks. There's stabbing and slicing with blades, and a violent fight with a sea monster. There's also some creepy imagery, and woman is taken against her will. Two women magically become pregnant. The word "bastard" is used per it's actual definition; there's no other language, and substance use and consumerism aren't issues. The movie could captivate older viewers with its quirkiness, but it's a little short on adventure, wit, and warmth.

Sexual Content

Several topless women. Graphic sex scene: A woman on top of a man, with breathing/groaning noises. A main character has many sex partners; he's shown kissing breasts. Two of his partners kiss each other and kiss each other's breasts.

Violence

Characters die. An ogre fights and kills people, breaking necks. Stabbing with blades. Blood runs out of a character's mouth. Neck-slicing, with spurting blood. Underwater fight with a sea monster includes stabbing and blood flowing in the water. Character is flayed, covered in blood. Character eats a giant sea monster's heart. Creepy giant flea. Ogre forces a woman to live in his cave.

Language

A use of "bastard" (the actual definition).

Social Behavior

The stories have lessons, though they're not as simple as those in fairy tales for younger audiences. The main take-away is probably about being aware of desire: Coveting things in life and then actually getting them doesn't always lead to happiness. Or, to put it more succinctly, "be careful what you wish for."
