Synopsis
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. Set in southern Spain in 1920s, Blancanieves is a tribute to silent films. Blancanieves was also Spain’s official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar for 2012. The special edition Blu-ray DVD combo of Blancanieves includes: * 26 page collectible booklet * Soundtrack download card * “Making Of” featurette * Director’s Presentation * “Blancanieves in Concert”
Reviews
“This film is a wonderment! A striking...full-bodied, visually stunning film.”
Roger Ebert
“The Absolutely Most Original Film of the Year! BLANCANIEVES is stunningly visual. Ole!”
Thelma Adams
“An original! Inventive… Contemporary… Imaginative… Charming… and Clever!”
David Rooney
“Daringly original! A gorgeously shot extravaganza has the cojones to think outside the box and comes out on top.”
Boyd Van Hoeij
“A kitsch celebration of Spanish ways that has drawn comparisons with early Pedro Almodovar films.”
John Hopewell
“The new film from Spanish writer-director Pablo Berger is a silent, black-and-white film so witty, riveting, and drop-dead gorgeous that moviegoers may forget to notice that they can’t hear the dialogue.”
