Blancanieves was Absolutely Beautiful

There’s recently been a resurgence of fairy tale films. This year there’s already been the release of Mirror, Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman, but it’s Blancanieves that truly took a new unique spin on the old Grimm tale. It’s a beautiful black and white silent version locating the story in Spain in the ‘20s.  Stunning cinematography, poignant performances, and an incredible score combine to create this masterpiece.

Read my review “Blancanieves: The Best Snow White Interpretation in Years” on Film, Food & Fun.

During the post screening Q&A,  a member of the audience said TIFF used to feature a silent film screened with orchestral accompaniment. If this was the case, it would be a fabulous feature to bring back!
