Blancanieves Reviews

Suitably dark for a film with barely concealed undercurrents of child abuse and necrophilia. Fans of Mirror Mirror need not apply.

"Blancanieves" is not as charming as "The Artist," but it's more sincerely a work of true silent cinema.

It hardly needs to be said that this fairytale is not really intended for children. In truth, few fairytales are.

Observer [UK]

Wittily, ingeniously and movingly conflates the Grimm fairytale of Snow White and the story of Carmen.

What makes this so entrancing is Berger's mastery of image and tone, and the wondrous combination of glistening monochrome cinematography, evocative production design, glorious costumes and an exceptional score from Alfonso de Vilallonga.

Pablo Berger's brainchild is truly enchanting.

Electric Sheep

For all his command of ambitious and playful narrative ingenuity and apt technical flair, Berger's study in demonised female vanity and the power of true beauty favours atmosphere over frenzy - and achieves it in striking fashion.

It feels saturated with pleasure: it is extremely pleasurable to watch, and shows every sign of having been extremely pleasurable to make.

This exquisite Spanish take on the Snow White fairy tale is in a different league from Hollywood's two recent attempts to retell the story: it's clever, artistic and emotionally thrilling

Blancanieves is a makeweight project, but its modest pleasures linger in the mind.

Will we soon get a movie every year, or every month, devoted to actors in silent-cinema slap doing kitschy dumb play to music-accompanied monochrome?

Will amuse and delight anyone who enjoys the Snow White story but always felt it needed more bullfighting. Happily, it will amuse and delight almost everyone else into the bargain.

It's so well shot that you can't quite believe that everything is actually in colour in real life.

Hugely entertaining, amusingly gothic silent movie pastiche with imaginative direction, a darkly funny script, terrific characters and the best animal performance you'll see all year.

Comfortably tops its bigger-budgeted contemporaries by every possible measure: it's more fun, more stylish and decidedly more memorable.

Strange and moody.... Cinema buffs will find it an intriguing curio, though.

Berger's stunning, if slightly overlong, film captures just how effective silent-era storytelling can still be.
