In this live-action adaptation of the beloved fairytale, old woodcarver Geppetto fashions a wooden puppet, Pinocchio, who magically comes to life. Pinocchio longs for adventure and is easily led astray, encountering magical beasts, fantastical spectacles, while making friends and foes along his journey. However, his dream is to become a real boy, which can only come true if he finally changes his ways.

Movie Reviews:

  • SWITCH.: Scored to tinkling chords by Dario Marianelli, this is the kind of film that Tim Burton probably thought he was making with the bland ‘Alice in Wonderland’ or Benh Zeitlin with his lumpen ‘Wendy’. Garrone manages to pull off something more captivating than a run-of-the-mill Disney-fied bedtime story – his ‘Pinocchio’ effortlessly fuses adventure, humour and moral instruction through the medium of magic realism.
