“Garrone makes of it a weirdly satisfying spectacle.”
Anew imagining of the iconic classic beloved across the world
Matteo Garrone returns to the authentic roots of the Pinocchio story. With this ground-breaking live action film shot in stunning Italian locations, Garrone creates a rich fantasy world of mystery and wonder, filled with luminous, funny and touching moments.
Academy Award® winning actor Roberto Benigni plays Geppetto, an old woodcarver who creates a puppet. But something magical happens – the cheeky puppet begins to talk and can walk, run and eat like any young boy. Geppetto calls him Pinocchio, and brings him up as his son.
