Hi all, silent black and white films are few and far between these days! Particularly ones featuring flamenco music, a very evil stepmother, and a band of bullfighting dwarves! Blancanieves is a gothic melodrama based on the fairy tale Snow White and has received good reviews with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 95% from 77 reviews. Should make for an interesting Sunday afternoon movie!
The enchanting daughter of a famed matador flees her wicked stepmother to join a band of bullfighting dwarfs in this Spanish take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale Snow White. Seville: the 1920s. Carmen (Sofia Oria) is a young girl whose mother died in childbirth, and whose torero father Antonio Villalta (Daniel Giménez Cacho) suffered a debilitating injury in the ring. Subsequently tormented by her flamenco-dancing stepmother Encarna (Maribel Verdú), Carmen secretly learns the art of bullfighting from her father until the day she is forced to flee for her life. Now a teenage girl facing an uncertain future, Carmen (Macarena García) falls in with a traveling troupe of dwarfs, adopts the name Blancanieves, and thrills audiences with her formidable skills as a matador. Upon learning what has become of her despised stepdaughter, the diabolical Encarna prepares to administer a punishment that will break the defiant girl's will for good.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
