Always liked to see or read modern version of old tales.I expect mystery,playfulness,humour,surprise...
Thé idea of a modern Snow White,thé begining on the pure beautiful face of Lou de Laage in contrast with thé classic and somehow desperate elegance of Isabelle Huppert,seemed promising.
What a disappointement !!The only thing that keeps going is a Snow White asserting her freedom in non convincing sex -scenes,with men that have to seem lost and inconsistent in ordre to satisfy a bad-feminist cliché.(so sorry for Poelveerde that does his best to save his dwarf charecter that is realy funny).
Not to mention thé wonderful Isabelle Huppert that can not express any real « step-mother feelings » because thé scenario is so poor and thé directing so linear.
Sorry to say but this modern story is just a set of old cliches.
