The Hollywood Reporter
Daringly original! A gorgeously shot extravaganza has the cojones to think outside the box and comes out on top.
A kitsch celebration of Spanish ways that has drawn comparisons with early Pedro Almodovar films.
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.
Pablo Berger’s Blancanieves impels the silent film renaissance.
