A Spanish early 20th century-era version of Snow White in The Artist style. The story is, as you might have expected, a bit silly. The very evil stepmother is a very evil ex-nurse, who is also a dominatrix and into outrageous fashion, naturally, as all very evil stepmothers certainly must be. And this is Spain, so you can also expect flamenco, bullfightings and matadors–a lot of matadors–in it.
My Rating: 5/10
