Once upon a time there was a little girl who had never known her mother. She learned the art of her father, a famous bullfighter, but was hated by her evil stepmother. One day she ran away with a troupe of dwarves, and became a legend. This tribute to silent films is set in southern Spain in the 1920s. [Cohen Media Group]

"The new film from Spanish writer-director Pablo Berger is a silent, black-and-white film so witty, riveting, and drop-dead gorgeous that moviegoers may forget to notice that they can't hear the dialogue."
- Chuck Wilson, Village Voice
"The silents, as this film suggests, achieved aesthetic marvels before sound came along to set things back for a while."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"If nothing else, Blancanieves offers an excellent case for revisiting the early days of cinema -- and for recognizing how much has been lost in its absence. While "The Artist" recalled the silent film industry, Blancanieves solely pays tribute to the art."
- Eric Kohn, IndieWIRE
"Berger's film is still far more magical than it is macabre. And so although a black-and-white, foreign-film adaptation of a very familiar tale might, indeed, be a hard sell, audiences who buy into it are in for an undeniably rewarding movie-going experience. In a word: ¡Ole!"
- Mike Scott, New Orleans Times-Picayune
"It is a full-bodied silent film of the sort that might have been made by the greatest directors of the 1920s, if such details as the kinky sadomasochism of this film's evil stepmother could have been slipped past the censors."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
