Certainly one of the most imaginative takes on Snow White ever filmed, Spain’s nominee for this year’s Foreign Language Oscar chronicles the travails of a young girl, Carmencita, who is born soon after her matador father is terribly gored. Years later, living with her infirm father and wicked stepmother, Carmencita finds solace when she runs off with a band of bullfighting dwarves. Endlessly inventive, the film has a striking expressionist look and continues the ‘20s period feel of the story by having title cards instead of dialogue. A Cohen Media Group release.
