The title means Snow White in Spanish, so there's the plot. It's set in the early 20th century world of bull fighting, but the big twist: it's in black and white and silent (except for the musical soundtrack and some intertitles).

It's set in the early 20th century world of bull fighting, but the big twist: it's in black and white and silent (except for the musical soundtrack and some intertitles). The cinematography is rich and there are period cinematic elements (overlapping images, gimmicky transitions). In an effort to create this stylized approach, the performances come off as stilted. The inevitable comparisons to "The Artist" leave this film lacking in originality or ingenuity. Expand

The fact that a B&W and silent film is released the year after another one like that wins the Best Picture Oscar, I think did hurt a little Blancanieves.

Even though, apparently, the project started before The Artist was made, so there was no copying from each other whatsoever. Having said that, it is amazing how B&W, silent films can produce strong emotions, at least as powerful as "traditional (today) films can be. Beautiful photography, and wonderful sets alone would make this film worth seeing. Add to that a good story, great direction, and an extraordinary music score, and this film is a winner. Expand

"Blancanieves" has all the charm and race in a Spanish film. With the typical local folklore, Berger gets revisit the classic tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (six in this film) in a way that, hopefully, in Hollywood would have been."Blancanieves" has all the charm and race in a Spanish film.

"Mirror, Mirror" and "Snow White and the Huntsman," which both were released the same year in Spain, unable to reach the strength of this Snow White. Congratulations! Expand

Blancanieves is a charming little Spanish film with great cinematography, but never seems to really fit into the genre. Its details are fitting, but the overall picture is only average.
