Synopsis:
The latest from Miguel Gomes, the director of 'Tabu', the 3 part 'Arabian Nights' is probably 2015's most ambitious cinematic undertaking, and the most talked about film experience of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. 'Arabian Nights' uses the framing device from the original tales with Scheherazade telling stories - but that's where the similarities end. Over three features, Gomes channels the current struggles of economically depressed Portugal through an assortment of tales that range from farcical yarns to grounded accounts of social issues.
It moves from a story of a criminal on the run to a farcical trial where everyone is implicated in interlocking misdeeds. It ends with the story of a dog named Dixie who's passed between multiple owners.
