Director: Guillermo del Toro

119 minutes, Spain-Mexico, 2006, Subtitled, Digital

Our monthly indulgent Sunday afternoon of brunch and a classic.

The release this month of adult fantasy Tale of Tales provides the Hangover Lounge with a welcome opportunity to revisit Guillermo del Toro’s dark fairytale. Arguably the director’s best work to date, and certainly his most popular, it tells the story of young Ofelia, the unhappy stepdaughter of a captain in Franco’s army. Relief from her difficult family situation appears in the form of a fairy who leads her to a magical labyrinth where she is believed to be the reincarnation of a princess. Filled with genuinely astonishing imagery, it may well prove to be del Toro’s most durable film. (Notes by Kevin Coyne.)


Brunch + film €16; film only is normal IFI pricing. Sunday brunch is served 12pm – 4pm.
