Blancanieves

Take the story "Snow White," throw in a matador, and make it into a black-and-white silent film. That's what seems to be going on here. And it sounds super interesting. Anyone want to join me for this screening of Blancanieves?

The show plays at 7pm, so let's meet at 6:45pm. I'll be in the lobby of the Garneau theatre, holding colourful flowers that refuse to transfer to a black-and-white pattern, no matter how hard I try to convert them.

Hope to see you then!

    Hi Guys,

    I'm so sorry that I arrived late. I couldn't let you know because I don't have your phone number Maria. I was looking for you guys, the only place that I didn't check, was the first rows, maybe you were the people in the first row in front of the screen???
    Anyways I was there, and love the movie, was fantastic, as always great movies from Spain. Thank you for choosing it, hope to see you next time :)

      It was Joseph who first introduced me to the front row in that theatre, and I haven't moved from there since. It's not too close to the screen, actually, and there's lots of room, and nobody sits in front of you.

    I was surprised how much I loved this movie. It was a very daring experiment making a silent film based on the Snow White fairy tale, set in early 20th century Spain with a bull fighting context. It seems to sound weird to talk about it, but it all held together beautifully.

      I loved all the visuals and the imagery, and how they added to the storytelling. Like, the scene where the stepmother is trying on her hats with all the big feathers, and then right away we see little Carmen in the hallway, picking up Pepe's feather, haha! Stuff like that. Just loved it. And I loved how the film explored all the emotions, from happiness to sadness to pretty much everything else. Good humour, too. Just a great film, a very unique and creative piece of art. I loved it.

    Steve, Jennifer told me that she would love to go to this movie. That means that it's probably some sort of chick flick or foreign film with a feminist message. You'll like it.

      Are matadors common in chick flicks? I really wouldn't know. I think I haven't watched an actual chick flick since about 1998.

      Think The Big Lebowski is a chick flick...so, will have seen one before this one ;-)

    Usually Spanish movies are very artistic and have a passionate and emotional burden fairly intense, making them very original and interesting ... I love them, so excited to go as well :)

      Oooh, that sounds intriguing. I love those kinds of emotional and passionate films. Thanks for your comments. :) It'll be great to see you again, too.

    Sure. Why not. This sounds suitably weird.

    • Maria

      That's the spirit! :)

      There was actually a preview for this film this evening before the "High Noon" screening. While this film looks weird, it'll be weird in an arty, beautiful sort of way. I'm very excited for it.
