Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio
Director: Guillermo del Toro, Mark Gustafson Run Time: 117 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 2022
Never one to shy away from a challenge, Guillermo del Toro sets out, with co-director Mark Gustafson, to reinvent the Pinocchio story for a contemporary audience. This stunning stop-motion animated fable has more in common with del Toro’s own Pan’s Labyrinth than with any Disney film and hews more closely to the dark themes of the original novel by Carlo Collodi.
“Del Toro has embraced the poetry in craftsmanship and ushered in the most beautiful stop-motion animation film in years.” – Clarisse Loughrey, Independent (UK)
