The Tales of Hoffmann 1951

You Will Never See Anything Finer On The Screen!
Hoffmann is a lovelorn young man in Nuremberg who is watching his latest love, Stella, dance in the ballet. In the interval he goes to the tavern where he tells his friends the tales of the three major loves of his life. Each story forms a separate act of this filmic version of the Offenbach opera.

Another beautiful piece from The Archers, the same team that produced The Red Shoes. It's visually sumptuous, like Shoes, but it lacks the earlier film's compelling narrative.
