Although at times it was a little confusing as they tended to blend several fairy tale tellings into one movie, it is well worth your time to watch. It is a movie for the whole family. The characters I like best were, of course, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. I don't know where they came up with the ideal of naming the Dwarves by the days of the week, but the Dwarves were neat and clever, and I liked the way that they travelled. I did not like the Wicked Queen, but then you're not supposed to and the ideal of adding a D'Jinn as sort of an overseer of the drama that unfolded was <more>
a neat twist. All in all, they did an excellent retelling of the timeless tale. Kristen Kreuk did an excellent job as Snow White.
Surreal, over the top and very impressive. (by hand-eti)
I just got a copy of the DVD from a second hand store and watched it without ever having heard of it. It is brilliant! Of course it is not a 90 minute remake of the classic fairy tale. It is certainly not a children's movie either.The makers of this movie just let their imagination run wild and every single move is surprising and any idea that was really too much was happily included in the movie. You'll be smiling from the beginning to the end.And you'll get three fairy tales for the price of one - the main storyline of the Snow Queen Andersen and a theme from Snow White and <more>
having just seen it, i was amazed at the creative way of telling the story of Snow White. the sets were colorful, the effects were "cool" especially the mirror effects , even it was only for TV, it said so much of the story, and a remarkable presentation by Miranda Richardson, as alwaysit's nice to see a talented newcomer like Kristin Kreuk. all and all, i'd say a 9 out of 10 for such a somewhat original take on a fairy tale classic.
A retelling of a well known tale by the Brothers Grimm (by Dmoody36)
When Josephine Vera Farmiga sees the combined images of the white of snow, the black of ebony and the red of blood she voices her desires for a child with such features. In time this does come to pass and Josephine and husband John Tom Irwin believe she is the most perfect baby, who; as we all know, is named Snow white .The Joy is short lived however as Josephine soon passes away leaving widower John to look after infant Snow white.After a moment where he pays his final respects at his wife's grave, the scene cuts to John wondering in the snow. if you look carefully, you may notice <more>
that his footprints show that he has gone round in a circle > When all seems lost, John's fallen tears thaw the icy prison of a magical being refered to in the end credits as: 'The granter of wishes, played by Clancy Brown . In exchange for his freedom the being offers John three wishes. The first is a request for milk, which is provided; secondly John wishes "I need my wife back, my queen." The granter of wishes cannot resurrect the dead Whether bound by law, or it's beyond his powers isn't specified , but can offer a queen and a kingdom to go with her.The granter of wishes offers the position of queen to his sister Elspeth, Miranda Richardson but not before giving her a whole new look. Elspeth seems to posses much the same magical power as her brother, but she is not as kind hearted.Much of the story follows as most people know it, with the infamous "Mirror, mirror, on the wall...who is the fairest of them all?" line been repeated several times in one part by a very vain queen Elspeth. Watch as she pulls a face and still gets her desired answer ; When suddenly Snow white Kristen Kreuk is fairest of them all this throws the queen into a fit of jealousy. Speaking of Snow white, Ms Kreuk plays a rather sassy version of her, as the following lines from the movie may show:Prince Alfred: Princess, you are so beautiful. Snow white: I am not; the queen is beautiful.Hector: The queen craves rabbit stew for breakfast. Snow white: You know that if there are any rabbits in the traps I'll just let them go. I'll go to the palace by myself. Hector: No you mustn't! The queen has ordered that I escort you. Snow white: I'm not afraid of the dark Hector.Snow white: If I was wearing one of the colours; say yellow... Wednesday: Yellow? That's my colour! First you steal my horse, now you want to steal my colour? Snow white: I did not steal the horse. Actually, she did .As for the 7 dwarfs, apart from been named after the days of the week, and pertaining to one of the 7 colours of the rainbow, which they can magically create and travel by, they are also responsible for the weather. Quote:- while in the process of creating a storm Saturday: Ah Wednesday, you're back, the teapot. Wednesday: I can't. Saturday: What do you mean you can't? Oh! Ha ha ha good joke, hilarious now hand it over.The movie reaches its critical scene with the infamous poisoned apple carefully coated with what appears to be wax on one side to be poison free . The queen disguises herself herself as Snow white's dead mother in order to deliver the apple, quite a contrast in character for Vera Farmiga from when she played the real Josephine at the beginning of the movie.False Josephine: after Snow white bites the apple No breath my dear? Oh, it looks like I've finally left you breathless. wicked laughter follows as she leaves .When Elspeth attempts to remove the 'Josephine' guise and return to her queenly form she instead becomes a gnarled crone Karin Konoval with an even more grotesque appearance than before her brother gave her a magical makeover. It becomes apparent that it is her brothers doing as he explains: GOW: Elspeth, I gave you a life that would make anyone happy, but... Crone: But? GOW: Look what you did, she was no threat until you imagined her to be one.
Lots of neat symbolism - I thought Miranda Richardson did a killer job with a tight script, some great sets the room of mirrors is brilliant sharp directionand great cinematography.I can't think of a better film depiction of a woman who suffers from a narcissistic personality disorder - it's clinically right on the button - - I guess itjust depends on why you watch a movie - for me it was really arrestingI do agree Kirstin Kreuk was probably out of her depth atthe time 2001 against Miranda Richardson... few wouldn'tbe at her age. Her progress as an actor in Smallville hasn't <more>
been stellar either - but you can't blame the casting director really - she looks perfect in the role
Kristin Kruek SHINES as "Snow White" (by oznickolaus)
It's not your traditional version of the Grimm's famous story, but this effort by Hallmark Entertainment distributed by Disney certainly has it's merits!Caroline Thompson's script tells the traditional story of the princess with "skin as white as snow" and the jealous stepmother who wishes her stepdaughter dead. But Thompson decides to elaborate the story with several touches of her own. For instance, Snow White's father, John played by Tom Irwin , releases a "jinn" or "genie" type creature Clancy Brown from a frozen prison in the ice. To <more>
show his thanks, the creature grants John three wishes: 1 milk for his infant daughter, 2 a kingdom, and 3 a queen. But the candidate chosen to sit at King John's side, is none other than the creature's hideous sister, Elsbeth Miranda Richardson . As an "act of kindness" to his sister, he transforms her blemished skin to worldly beauty. But King John's heart still lies with his dead wife, Josephine Vera Farmiga . So, Elspeth's first spell of manipulation is cast.Another added plot twist borrows from another Grimm's story, "Snow White and Rose Red". Queen Elsbeth lets her raging hormones get the best of her when Prince Alfred Tyron Leitso spurns her lusty advances. For revenge, Elsbeth turns the prince into a bear, who then seeks out Snow White to help break the spell.In a psychological twist, Esbeth disguises herself as Josephine, Snow White's mother, when she delivers the poisoned apple. Quite clever.Hallmark Entertainment regular Miranda Richardson is perfectly cast as the woman who's sole existence rides on being "fairest in the land". In her usual brilliant way, Richardson's performance is deranged yet humorous all at once.Kristin Kreuk WB's "Smallville" as "Snow White" gives a deeper performance than one would expect. Rather than turning the princess into a sugary sweet victim, Kreuk brings out the human qualities of a teenager who longs to be seen as more than the beauty she is. Because of Elsbeth's spell on him, her father ignores her. Her stepmother hates her. The visiting prince swoons over her. The poor girl simply wants to be loved and known for the person behind the beautiful face. Kreuk was the perfect choice.The seven dwarfs are creatively reworked as the creatures that control the weather. They travel around the countryside as a rainbow, with each of them playing a different color. Named for the days of the week, each dwarf's personality comes from the old nursery rhyme' "Monday's child is fair of face, Tuesday's child is full of grace.....". Warwick Davis, of Ewok fame, plays "Saturday". Davis is no stranger the Snow White story, having performed in and directed many pantomime productions in his homeland of England. In another creative twist, Vincent Schiavelli plays "Wednesday"....the only "dwarf" over 4.5 feet tall! Michael J. Anderson Twin Peaks plays "Sunday" the kind-hearted sympathetic leader of the "magnificent seven".As in anything she is in, Vera Farmiga is wonderful. She is under used sadly, as Josephine is buried for most of the film. Thankfully she is brought back for the famous apple sequence.If you are expecting a live action version of the Disney 1937 classic, you will be greatly disappointed. The film rides on it's own merit and will hopefully become another family classic. Thanks Hallmark!
