A re-telling of the classic Brothers’ Grimm fairy tale “Snow White”, Blancanieves is a breathtakingly beautiful film and a uniquely spirited homage to the black-and-white Golden Age of Europe’s silent cinema. Set in a romanticized 1920s Seville, Berger’s Snow White is Carmen, the daughter of a famous bullfighter, who lives under the tyrannical rule of her monstrous, evil stepmother, Encarna. She escapes and joins a troupe of bullfighting dwarves, where her beauty and natural talent in the ring attract notices from the press. But soon the news reaches Encarna, who at last she knows where to find Carmen, and she prepares for the final showdown.

BLANCANIEVES, de Pablo Berger, es una original visión del popular cuento de los hermanos Grimm, ambientada en los años 20 en el sur de España. Blancanieves es Carmen (Macarena García), una bella joven con una infancia atormentada por su terrible madrastra, Encarna (Maribel Verdú). Huyendo de su pasado, Carmen, emprenderá un apasionante viaje acompañada por sus nuevos amigos: una troupe de enanos toreros. Una BLANCANIEVES llena de fantasía, aventuras, emoción y humor. Nunca antes te contaron el cuento así.
