In this masterpiece by Spanish director Pablo Berger, Snow White is recast as a talented bullfighter in a wonderfully eerie and erotic silent film treat.
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.
Blancanieves is a riveting and transgressive version of the Grimm classic fairy tale set in pre-war Spain.
