THE TALES OF HOFFMAN

A poet recalls his memories of the three women he has loved; a mechanical performing doll, a Venetian courtesan, and the consumptive daughter of a celebrated composer. Outstanding British filmmaking duo, Powell and Pressburger have adapted this opera into a poetic film of flashbacks and loves lost.
