Once upon a time, there was a little girl who never knew 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 dwarfs and became a legend. Set in southern Spain in 1920s, Blancanieves is a tribute to silent film. –TIFF
This film is true to the style and aesthetics of some silent cinema. There are even hairs in the frame at points. I'm also glad that it didn't go too far, and recognised that silent filmmakers also had a grasp of focus and exposure (too many silent pastiches are made with blurry pictures and muted greys). Sadly, though, the cinema had insufficient side masking, meaning the image was awkwardly letterboxed.
