About the Movie

Spain’s official submission to the 85th Academy Awards® for Best Foreign Film, Blancanieves is a gorgeous, black-and-white homage to the Golden Age of Europe’s silent cinema. The intoxicating film relocates the tale of Snow White to a sweepingly romantic vision of 1920s Spain, where a young girl escapes from her wicked stepmother to find fame as a matador. Blancanieves premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival to rave reviews before picking up a Special Jury Award and Best Prize at the 2012 San Sebastian International Film festival. The film has gone on to win an impressive 10 GOYA Awards from the Academy of Cinematic Art and Science including Best Film and Best Actress.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This year's crowded field of Snow White movies has a winner, at least in terms of quality, in Pablo Berger's delightful Blancanieves. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Nov 27, 2013

Fresh: From Spain, here's a miracle of fairy tale repurposing: a version of the Brothers Grimm's "Snow White," set in Spanish bullfighting country in the late 1920s. Writer-director Pablo Berger's Blancanieves goes all the way with its concept, and then further. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Nov 27, 2013

Fresh: We're not in Disney's world. Berger knows his Grimm, and he suffuses his entrancing fairy tale with a moving sense of melancholy. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Nov 27, 2013

Fresh: Alfonso de Vilallonga's music isn't mere accompaniment, it's a score with rich emotional resonance. The silents, as this film suggests, achieved aesthetic marvels before sound came along to set things back for a while. – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, Nov 27, 2013
