Never before, have you heard the story like this...
Once upon a time there was a little girl who had never known her mother. She learned the art of her father, a famous bullfighter, but was hated by her evil stepmother. One day she ran away with a troupe of dwarves, and became a legend.
A re-telling of the classic Brothers’ Grimm fairy tale “Snow White”, BLANCANIEVES is a breathtakingly beautiful film and a uniquely spirited homage to the black-and-white Golden Age of Europe’s silent cinema. Set in a romanticized 1920s Seville, director Pablo Berger’s Snow White is Carmen, the daughter of a famous bullfighter (Daniel Giménez Cacho), who lives under the tyrannical rule of her monstrous, evil stepmother, Encarna (Maribel Verdú). She escapes and joins a troupe of bullfighting dwarves, where her beauty and natural talent in the ring attract notices from the press. But soon the news reaches Encarna, who at last she knows where to find Carmen, and she prepares for the final showdown. Starring Maribel Verdu (Pan’s Labyrinth, Y tu mamá también), Angela Molina (Broken Embraces, Live Flesh), Daniel Giménez Cacho, Macarena Garcia, and Sofia Oria.
