2016/17 Season


Spain/Belgium/France 2012 (12)
104 minutes

Directed by Pablo Berger

Ipswich Film Theatre - 6 March 2017 - 7.30pm

This extraordinary film centres around a woman bullfighter in 1920s Spain, and is a retread of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves in black and white! It is also a silent film, except that its beating heart is the fantastic flamenco music that courses through it, and you will find nothing so inventive in many a month at the movies.

AUDIENCE COMMENTS: Remarkable how excellent cinematography and music can make dialogue superfluous; Beautiful composed in the period style a bit creepy at the end; Three cheers for bulls, chickens and handsome princes; What a strange film a whole new genre for me. Surreal, delightful and disturbing; (Brothers) Grim(m) but great acting by Pepe the Chicken.
