Modern silent film re-tells classic

By JimJabu
Written March 26, 2017
If you’re looking for a happy ending, stop here. This original and imaginative version of the Snow White tale gives great acting, excellent photography, and a wonderful original musical score, but it doesn’t provide that happy ending we’ve come to expect, and that may turn off many viewers. The film is silent, apart from the music and occasional sound effects. Kudos go to Maribel Verdu (wicked stepmother), Daniel Gimenez Cacho (bull-fighting father), Angela Molina (grandmother), and Sofia Oria as the young Snow White. The film won 10 Spanish Oscar awards and was nominated for another 8. The Hollywood Reporter said “the broad-strokes storytelling is generally brisk, lucid and imaginative”. The NY Times said the film “deftly blends cinematic antiquarianism, period atmosphere, and primal emotions”

A Spanish Fairy Tale

Beautifully filmed and imaginative. Well acted though somewhat preposterous. With so little around at this time it is worth seeing.
