A black and white silent movie based on the Snow White fairy tale: Carmen is the daughter of a famous matador who ends up in a wheelchair after a bullfight. The evil stepmother condemns the little girl to the most menial of jobs and, after her father's death, tries to get rid of her too. When she manages to escape to a troupe of dwarf toreros, Carmen discovers her true calling and becomes the queen of the corridas. But can she escape her fairy-tale fate?

Rien n'est plus beau que le noir et blanc, qui sculpte les visages et sonde les âmes, sublime les costumes et les décors, somptueux, augmente les foules rassemblées à l'écran et donne vie aux lumières et aux ombres, et avec elles aux fantômes.

Pascal Mérigeau

Visuellement splendide, le film nous emporte dans un tourbillon d'émotions grâce à son parti pris audacieux (images en noir et blanc, pas de dialogues), la puissance de sa narration, la subtilité de son interprétation et sa musique enveloppante, incandescente, tragique. Coup de coeur.

Stéphanie Belpêche

Un pari réussi dans la forme, magnifique, et dans le fond, captivant.
