Director / writer / producer Pablo Berger re-imagines the classic tale of Snow White, in his latest black and white silent film homage Blancanieves. Automatic comparisons to Michel Hazanavicius’ The Artist (previously featured on EK here) may arise, but past the monochrome glaze and boxish aspect ratio, Berger’s film stands firmly as its own voice of unique storytelling.
Read the official synopsis as follows:
“BLANCANIEVES is a gothic melodrama inspired by the Brothers´ Grimm tale.
Once upon a time there was a little girl who had never met her mother, and she grew up being hated by her evil stepmother.
She learned her father’s art, a famous bullfighter, and one day she ran away to become a legend.
Set in 1920s south of Spain, BLANCANIEVES is a tribute to silent films.”
