SPAIN arts & culture’s Cine-Club presents one of the most imaginative takes on Snow White ever filmed as part of the IberoAmerican Film Showcase 2014.
Rejected at birth by her father, Carmencita (Macarena Garcia) is raised by her grandmother. But when granny dies, the poor dark-haired maiden is sent to the lower depths of her evil stepmother’s villa.
Maribel Verdu gives a knockout performance as the villainess, keeping Carmencita from Prince Charming —a bullfighting dwarf!— and thwarting her dreams of becoming a matador.
