Snow White

 

(Blancanieves) Director: Pablo Berger, E-F, 2012, Catalan version / Czech subtitles, 104 min

The tale of a Spanish Snow White in the world of matadors and bullfights.

Famous matador, Antonio Villalta, becomes paralyzed after being charged by a bull in a fight. Soon afterwards, his pregnant wife, who had watched the battle, dies while giving birth to little Carmen. Years pass, and like a leech, Antonio’s nefarious caretaker, Encarna, clings to the wealthy, powerless man, and becomes his new wife. Carmen lives with her grandmother, but after her death, she must return to her father and stepmother. The wicked lady first sentences Carmen to life in the cellars and then, after several plot twists, to death. The girl survives, however, and is rescued by a group of dwarves who themselves happen to be matadors. Under the nom de guerre of Snow White, she comes to fame in the bullfighting arena, though her insidious stepmother has not yet spoken her last.
