Blancanieves, 2012 – ★★★★

There is a lot to like about this film. Cinematography reminiscent of Eisenstein. A standout performance from Maribel Verdú as the evil stepmother. A tempo that allows for both the intimate development of relationships and the high octane action of the bull ring. A score that perfectly matches the drama being played out on screen and adds to the cultural context. 

And it’s the best adaption of Snow White I’ve ever seen.
