The Cohen Media Group will be releasing Pablo Berger's unique ode to silent cinema and the Snow White myth,
Blancanieves, on DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack next month. The Blu-ray will feature a 'download card' good for the full soundtrack, and both releases will have a making-of documentary, a director's introduction, Blancanieves: Live Concert in Barcelona & Madrid, and a collectible booklet.
Blancanieveshas been ingeniously directed by Pablo Berger ( Torremolinos 73) in the timeless style of the great silent films, but with a modern, and even daring edge. A famous bullfighter, Antonio Villalta (Daniel Gimenez Cacho), suffers a paralyzing trauma in the ring on the very day that his wife dies while giving birth to a daughter, Carmen (Sofia Oria). The invalid Antonio eventually marries his nurse (Maribel Verdu), a sadistic social climber who treats the sweet Carmen as a slave. In time, the girl manages to flee her oppressive home and joins a traveling band of dwarves who perform as comedic matadors. And it turns out, once she picks up the red robe, Carmen (Macarena Garcia) is a naturally gifted bullfighter, just like her father. But her great success is just the thing to stir her wicked stepmother's deadly rage.
