Trivia

Ravenna is also the name of an Italian city south of Venice, rich of precious architectural Byzantine art. The city was home to Italy's national poet, Dante Alighieri, and was the capital of Italy in the 4th, 5th, and 6th centuries. To an Italian audience, this name may not sound as dark as it was meant to. See more »

Snow White meets the White Stag and puts her left hand on the right side of his face. Change camera and we then see that hand on the left of his face, then her entire left arm is to the right of his face. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
The Huntsman: [narration] Once upon a time, in deep winter, a queen was admiring the falling snow, when she saw a rose blooming in defiance of the cold. Reaching for it she pricked her finger and three drops of blood fell. And because the red seemed so alive against the white she thought, "If only I had a child as white as snow, lips as red as blood, hair as black as a raven's wings, and all with the strength of that rose." Soon after a daughter was born to the queen and was named Snow White.

Worth it
1 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must say, when I first heard the news that there was going to be a Snow White live-action film, I had a good laugh. When I heard that Kristen Stewart was going to play Snow White, I had an even bigger laugh. But when I saw the trailer, I stopped laughing. And then I watched the movie, and knew I had to write a review. This film is not going to win many(if any) awards, nor will it be a favorite this year, but it is entirely a good movie. Stunning visual effects, many great landscape shots, good acting, great action, and a believable storyline. This is not the Disney film you are used to, but a much grittier and more mature take on the original tale. You should not take your children to this film, nor should the intense nature of the film scare you off. I enjoyed it from start to finish, and I think many people will too.
