SLOW AND HARDLY EXCITING
16 August 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

My own favourite fairy tale character Snow White has a dull performer in Elke Arendt in this faithful but slow and hardly exiting adaptation of the fairy tale. The dwarfs are played by children; a nice idea, but it does not work: they remain children. Plain cinematography and dull music (the dwarfs only know one song) add to the tedium. The wicked queen is too nice. The colours are nice, but do not help much. Not up to the usual standards of a Schonger production, this film is no competetion for Walt Disney's version.
