Let’s face it; it’s not really easy to retell the story of Snow White story in new and exciting ways. But that’s exactly what Pablo Berger has done with Blancanieves. The Spanish filmmaker’s reinvention of the famed fable as a black-and-white silent film – with Snow White as a female bullfighter in 1920s Seville – is probably the most original makeover to date. Starring fresh-faced Spanish actress Macarena García, the film is Spain’s official Academy Award entry in the Best Foreign Language Film race for good reason: it proves a picture is worth a thousand words. iOle!
