Snow White in Seville 

When: Sun., March 2 2014
Snow White in Seville If you’re addicted to movies, stop what you’re doing and go see Blancanieves. This fabulous update of (and twist on) the Grimm Brothers’ Snow White fairytale is enchanting in every way. It’s a silent film set in 1920s Seville. A little girl who never knew her mother runs off with a troupe of dwarves and becomes a famous bullfighter. This one’s an homage to silent films that is itself a beautiful silent film. Hemingway himself would weep at its beauty and Iberian truth. The little girl is the cutest thing you’ve ever seen and auteur Pablo Berger has created a world so rich in textures and details that even without spoken dialogue, it’s rapturous to experience. If you loved The Artist and hated Brothers Grimm, you’ll fall head over heels for this gem from Spain. The film screens today at 1:30 p.m. at the Cleveland Museum of Art. (Allard) 11150 East Blvd., 216-421-7350, clevelandart.org.
