Blancanieves: ShockYa Movie Review

ShockYa: A loving tribute to European silent films of the 1920s, writer-director Pablo Berger’s “Blancanieves” repurposes the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale of Snow White, telling the tale of an oppressed daughter of a great toreador who runs away with a circus to find her destiny. The Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award submission from Spain (its intertitles come in subtitled Spanish), Berger’s fetching film is a reminder that cinema need not be constrained by words — that there is a universality to images, and stories can just as readily be told via a skillful ordering of those. (Blancanieves, Indie film) B/A+
