A sensation that stampeded through the 2013 Goyas (Spanish Oscars) by winning 10 awards, including Best Film, "Blancanieves" is a visually spectacular retelling of the Snow White fairy tale in silent film form, repurposing our lead into a female bullfighter left for dead by her sadistic stepmother, then discovered and raised by a troupe of traveling dwarves. No less an authority than the late Roger Ebert described "Blancanieves" as a "wonderment." Fans (and detractors!) of "The Artist" will be awestruck by this love letter to silent-era filmmaking whose style is anything but Grimm.
