The title means Snow White in Spanish, so there’s the plot. It’s set in the early 20th century world of bull fighting, but the big twist: it’s in black and white and silent (except for the musical soundtrack and some intertitles). The cinematography is rich and there are period cinematic elements (overlapping images, gimmicky transitions). In an effort to create this stylized approach, the performances come off as stilted. The inevitable comparisons to “The Artist” leave this film lacking in originality or ingenuity.
