In Matteo Garrone’s new live-action Pinocchio movie, which the filmmaker and his co-screenwriter Massimo Ceccherini based on Carlo Collodi’s original 1883 children’s fable, there is something rich, odd, and kind.
They have presented us with a tale that shockingly blends tenderness and grotesqueness. It frequently resembles a horror movie.
The plot of this Pinocchio differs significantly from that of the renowned 1940 Disney musical version, and it almost could have been one of the tales that Garrone dramatised in his freaky-fabulous film Tale of Tales.
For instance, Pinocchio was never mercilessly hung from a tree by two con artists who intended to rob him in a Walt Disney production.
However, one of the drama’s most intriguing aspects is how Pinocchio, the magical wooden puppet who longs to be a “real boy,” acquires this genuine humanness by being taken advantage of, going through pain, and ultimately being reborn with skin and hair — in a stable, as it happens.
The poor, childless wood craftsman Geppetto (Tom Hanks) creates a lifelike marionette, gives it the name Pinnochio, gives it Benjamin Evan Ainsworth’s voice, and begins to raise it as his own child.
The plot thickens when Pinnochio comes to life and embarks on a thrilling quest to transform into a real boy. Following Geppetto, the musical fantasy is Pinnochio by Walt Disney’s second live-action adaption.
Additionally, a new character named Sofia the Seagull who wasn’t in the original 1883 Italian edition of “Adventures of Pinnochio” is introduced in the movie.
