A brilliant tribute to silent films and Spain’s official entry for the 2012 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, BLANCANIEVES has been praised as “a wonderment.... a full bodied, visually stunning film” by Roger Ebert. Adapting the Grimm Brothers’ Snow White fairy tale to 1920s southern Spain, director Pablo Berger inventively tells the story of a little girl who had never known her mother and was hated by her evil stepmother. After running away with a troupe of dwarves and mastering the art of her father, a famous bullfighter, the girl nicknamed Blancanieves becomes a legend.
