A sulphurous and quirky comedy
12 April 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

Modern and revisited version of the German tale set in shape by the Grimm brothers in 1812 and popularized all over the world by Walt Disney in 1937. It's funny, inventive, subversive, free and mature. Although the movie slightly flounders during the first thirty minutes, Anne Fontaine dares! The wicked witch imbued with her person is replaced by an unscrupulous woman disappointed by her unfaithful husband, and the seven dwarves are partially replaced by ...guess what!... sex friends, the movie openly flirting with eroticism. Lou de Laâge, Isabelle Huppert, Vincent Macaigne and Benoît Poelvoorde are awesome.
