Pablo Berger
Maribel Verdú, Daniel Giménez Cacho, Ángela Molina, Macarena García
TIFF edition:

A re-telling of the classic fairy tale, Snow White is a uniquely spirited homage to the black-and-white Golden Age of European silent cinema. Set in a romanticized 1920s Seville, Berger’s Snow White is Carmen, the daughter of a famous bullfighter, who lives under the tyrannical rule of her monstrous, evil stepmother, Encarna. She escapes and joins a troupe of bullfighting dwarves, where her beauty and natural talent in the ring attract notices from the press. But soon the news reaches Encarna, who at last she knows where to find Carmen, and she prepares for the final showdown.
