Blancanieves Reviews

Landon Palmer
Film School Rejects

Far from an arthouse gimmick, Blancanieves marries style and story in a way that seems so obvious and fitting that it's a wonder why this film hadn't been made before.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It oddly looks like a cross between a Guy Maddin and Tod Browning flick, one that couldn't keep its straight silent pic pretense without shooting for something more modern.

What Berger does with the actors, the sight gags, the close-ups, the music, the photography is close to perfection.

The best Snow White re-imagining produced in the last few years.

This year's crowded field of Snow White movies has a winner, at least in terms of quality, in Pablo Berger's delightful Blancanieves.

Berger, like his rad forebear Luis Bunuel, marries poetry to film.

While the story, shorn of its supernatural elements, is mired in abuse and tragedy, its effect is sensual and superficial.

We're not in Disney's world. Berger knows his Grimm, and he suffuses his entrancing fairy tale with a moving sense of melancholy.

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.

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.

It's a sumptuously told tale, shot with painterly visuals and edited with a cool, melodic rhythm.

Given all the hoo-haa over The Artist - did it really win Oscars for Best Film, Director & Actor? 'Fraid so. - it's a surprise this splendid Spanish silent retelling of Snow White hasn't drawn more plaudits.

Inspired, perhaps, by The Artist, writer/director/producer Pablo Berger's handsome Spanish production (with English subtitles) updates the Grimm Brothers Snow White tale to the world of 1920s bullfighting - and, well, why not?

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.
