Once upon a time there was a little girl who had never known her mother. She learned the art of her father, a famous bullfighter, but was hated by her evil stepmother. One day she ran away with a troupe of dwarves, and became a legend.
Set in southern Spain in 1920s, Blancanieves is a tribute to silent films. Blancanieves is the winner of ten Goya Awards including Best Picture, Best Screenplay (Pablo Berger), Best Actress (Maribel Verdú), Best New Actress (Macarena García); and is also Spain’s official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar for 2012.
Había una vez una pequeña niña que nunca conoció a su madre. Aprendió el arte de su padre, un famoso torero, pero era odiada por su malvada madrastra. Un día se escapó con una compañía de enanos, y se convirtió en una leyenda.
Ambientada en el sur de España de los años 1920's, Blancanieves es un tributo al cine silente. Blancanieves fue galardonada con diez premios Goya, incluyendo Mejor Película, Mejor Guión (Pablo Berger), Mejor Acrtiz (Maribel Verdú), y Mejor Actriz Revelación (Macarena García), y fue seleccionada para representar a España en los premios Oscar de 2012.
"This film is a wonderment! A striking… full-bodied, visually stunning film.” -Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“An original! Inventive… Contemporary… Imaginative… Charming… and Clever!” -David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
“Daringly original! A gorgeously shot extravaganza has the cojones to think outside the box and comes out on top.” -Boyd Van Hoeij, indiewire
