Blancanieves is a beautifully crafted re-imagined fairytale that needs no words. Character, Carmen's big marble like eyes and strong willful movement are enough to keep the story moving forward. It experiments with all that is the original tale of Snow White, only in a more traditional Spaniard way. It will have you at the edge of your seat even if you are familiar with the original tale and it will only grasp your heart to break it. The longing of a daughter for her ill stricken father, hits close to anyone's tear ducts and the sourness of a greedy stepmother is enough to make the skin crawl. Don't be intimidated by the fact that it is a lengthy silent film, the emotional provoking and artistic filming will be worth all the while.
