Rapunzel – the Final Chapter: Sisters Grimm

No tears before bedtime

This is a little gem from Sisters Grimm, the collective name for Royal Ballet First Artist Pietra Mello-Pittman and composer Ella Spira. Gorgeously filmed by an outstanding creative team including Peter Talbot (Director of Photography on James Bond movie Casino Royale) and Chris Gill (Danny Boyle’s editor) Rapunzel: the Final Chapter features some top-notch performances from the Royal Ballet’s Sabina Westcombe and the Mariinsky’s (and ex-Royal Ballet) Xander Parish.

Ella’s cinematic score swoops the forested fairytale along while Pietra’s first stab at directing is astonishingly assured – look out for the Man Ray eyelash shot. The lighting is particularly beautiful.

A full-length film is promised soon. Until then it’s best to just let your hair down and watch this one. Spoiler warning: as this is the self-confessed Final Chapter it does rather reveal the end. Still, you could always turn a blind eye.
