The Tales of Hoffmann

You Will Never See Anything Finer On The Screen!

Categories: Fantasy, Music, Romance, Adventure
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.
