Directed by French screenwriter and former actress, Anne Fontaine, “Blanche Comme Neige” puts a modern spin on the famous Brother Grimm’s tale of Snow White. Through a more erotic lens, this French drama embraces femininity, women’s empowerment and liberation while delivering the recognizable storyline and fantasy of Snow White that we all once loved.
Claire, a beautiful young woman, arouses the all-consuming jealousy of her stepmother Maud, who hires someone to kill her. Saved at the last minute by a mysterious man who takes her to his farm, Claire decides to stay in this small village, where she causes quite a stir: one, two, and soon seven men fall under her charm. For Claire this is the beginning of a radical emancipation, both charnel and romantic. – Plot
“Blanche Comme Neige is a cool and sophisticated work which explores the emotional and sexual emancipation of a woman; a subject which resonates loudly in the modern-day world.” – Cineuropa
The screening will take place at Club de l’Étoile cinema, located a short walk from the world-famous Arc de Triomphe! We will be offering a variety of French-inspired drinks and snacks during our cocktail hour from 6pm and start the screening at 7pm.
Make sure not to miss out on this modern French film that revisits the famous tale of Snow White on May 12th!
