Snow White

Pablo Berger│Spain│2012│HD│B+W│104 mins│M
“Continuing the trend started by The Artist, the Oscar-winning silent film of 2012, Blancanieves / Snow White, directed by Pablo Berger, is a stylized reinterpretation of the Grimm fairy tale, employing the cinematic means of the early twentieth century. The action moves from the cold North of Europe to the Andalusian coast, in the 20's. Snow White, this time around called Carmen, is the motherless daughter of a bullfighter and travels with a group of dwarf bullfighters. Despite the machinations devised by her stepmother, the source of destructive passions and tensions of the story – hauntingly played by Maribel Verdú (Pan's Labyrinth  and Y tu mamá también) - Carmen steps into her father's footsteps and enters the bullfighting arena.”- Toronto International Film Festival
