Pinocchio longs for adventure and is easily led astray from being a dutiful wooden son.

However, his dream is to become a real boy, which can only come true if he finally changes his ways.

A film by Matteo Garrone

A beautiful and cleverly crafted piece which manages to be a faithful return to Collodi’s original tale and very much the director’s own take.”
