Blancanieves is a gothic melodrama inspired by the Brothers´ Grimm tale.
Once upon a time there was a little girl who had never met her mother, and she grew up being hated by her evil stepmother.
She learned her father’s art, a famous bullfighter, and one day she ran away to become a legend.
Set in 1920s south of Spain, Blancanieves is a tribute to silent films.
"It is a full-bodied silent film of the sort that might have been
made by the greatest directors of the 1920s, if such details as the
kinky sadomasochism of this film's evil stepmother could have been
slipped past the censors." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A sensual and sophisticated retelling of a beloved fairytale
re-imagined as a homage to European silent cinema, Spanish
writer-director Pablo Berger's black-and-white Blancanieves will leave
you transfixed." - Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
