Blancanieves is a twist on the Snow White fairy tale. This time it is set in 1920s Seville (Spain) and centered on a female bullfighter. This film won multiple Goya Awards (Spain’s highest film award) and was Spain’s submission for the Oscar’s. Pablo Berger directs and it stars Maribel Verdu (Pan’s Labyrinth, Y Tu Mama Tambien), Daniel Gimenez Cacho (Y Tu Mama Tambien, Bad Education) , and Angela Molina (Live Flesh, Broken Embraces).
It’s an excellent film that will certainly delight.
The film is screening at the Embarcadero Center Cinemas in San Francisco starting April 19th.
