Marina Antunes [Film Festival 08.03.12] drama adventure arthouse

Over the years there have been numerous interpretations of Snow White but few have looked, or sounded, quite like Pablo Berger's Blancanieves. The Spaniard has taken the Grimm fairytale and transported it to 1920's southern Spain where a young woman named Carmen, who has been tormented by her evil stepmother throughout her youth, runs away from her past and falls into an adventure accompanied by a group of dwarf bullfighters.

Not only has the story been transplanted to another place and time but Berger has married the late with bullfighting, gorgeous black and white photography (cinematographer Kiko de la Rica who captured Álex de la Iglesia's most recent two films is partially responsible for the film's look), and all the trappings of silent film. This trailer looks and sounds gorgeous.

Blancanieves will have it's world premier at the San Sebastian Film Festival.
