Overview

The enchanting daughter of a famed matador flees her wicked stepmother to join a band of bullfighting dwarfs in this Spanish take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale SNOW WHITE. Seville: the 1920s. Carmen (Sofia Oria) is a young girl whose mother died in childbirth, and whose torero father Antonio Villalta (Daniel Giménez Cacho) suffered a debilitating injury in the ring. Subsequently tormented by her flamenco-dancing stepmother Encarna (Maribel Verdú), Carmen secretly learns the art of bullfighting from her father until the day she is forced to flee for her life. Now a teenage girl facing an uncertain future, Carmen (Macarena García) falls in with a traveling troupe of dwarfs, adopts the name Blancanieves, and thrills audiences with her formidable skills as a matador. Upon learning what has become of her despised stepdaughter, the diabolical Encarna prepares to administer a punishment that will break the defiant girl's will for good.

Reviews:
"[A] spectacular retelling of the Snow White myth....Alfonso de Vilallonga's music isn't mere accompaniment, it's a score with rich emotional resonance." - 03/28/2013 Wall Street Journal


"Where BLANCANIEVES does best is in its look, the overall way it's made and, most of all, how well it's been able to re-create for modern audiences the silent cinema experience." - 03/28/2013 Los Angeles Times


"Pablo Berger’s BLANCANIEVES combines two recent movie trends: the updating of classic fairy tales and the rediscovery of silent film." - 03/29/2013 New York Times


"BLANCANIEVES still feels modern, with a style of visual storytelling that owes a lot to music videos and the European New Wave cinema of the ’50s and ’60s." - 03/28/2013 A.V. Club


4 stars out of 4 -- "[A] striking, visually stunning Spanish feature....It is a full-bodied silent film of the sort that might have been made by the greatest directors of the 1920s..." - 04/25/2013 Chicago Sun-Times


4 stars out of 5 -- "It’s a sumptuously told tale, shot with painterly visuals and edited with a cool, melodic rhythm." - 07/08/2013 Total Film
