Product Description

There is no more beloved fairytale than the legend of the beautiful young girl fleeing her home because of a jealous stepmother. More breathtaking that any previous interpretation of this timeless Brothers Grimm tale, and with dazzling special effects, Snow White: The Fairest Of Them All is a magical adventure on a truly epic scale. Wonderfully acted and cleverly scripted, this modern re-telling introduces such classic elements as Snow Whites miraculous birth and the mysterious reason why her father remarries after his wife s death. Miranda Richardson is Queen Elspeth, the beautiful yet vain stepmother whose desire to be the fairest of them all ultimately leads her to conspire to kill any rival to the title. Kristen Kreuk is Snow White, the winsome young princess, forced to run away into the forest where she finds protection and shelter with a band of peculiar little men. Re-imagined for a new generation, Snow White: The Fairest Of Them All is a fairytale like no other.

5.0 out of 5 stars snow white 1 Sep 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
An excellent and refreshing version of this classic. Enough twists to make it different, but also very recognisable for a child familiar with the story. The dwarfs are named after the days of the week and each wear a colour of the rainbow they can all form together. It is good enough to watch together with your child, very magical and well made.

4.0 out of 5 stars wonderfully surreal for both kids & adults... 24 Oct 2003
By Priyan Meewella VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Hallmark have been making elaborate made-for-TV productions for some time, but this dark retelling of Snow White is certainly unusual. This is a fairytale the way The Brothers Grimm would have told it, full of life but disctinctly surreal.
John [Tom Irwin] and Josephine are a poor couple living in a forest. After the birth of a daughter, whom they name Snow White, Josephine dies. Trying to protect his child, John becomes trapped in a blizzard. Weeping for his infant, his tears free the Green-Eyed One, a horrifying creature trapped in the ice. Out of gratitude, he grants John a wish, convincing him to wish not only for food and shelter, but to marry a Queen. For the Green-Eyed One has a sister to marry off, and John is granted a lavish castle with the formerly hideous, but now beautiful Elspeth [Miranda Richardson], who soon becomes jealous of her step-daughter's beauty.
Screen writers Caroline Thompson and Julie Hickson are clearly not content to follow the established version of Snow White and embelish their story with a number of new elements, which certainly keeps things interestingly original. It has its own unique charm with a host very well designed characters. Interestingly, both writers have worked with Tim Burton (Hickson and Burton even dated for a time) and the darker influence that mingles with a plot that is generally sweet is sometimes reminiscent of Burton's style, though perhaps not quite so dark. The result is something mellow, without being too taxing to watch.
Queen Elspeth is certainly the most interesting character, due to a delightfully wicked performance by Miranda Richardson.

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
"Snow White: The Fairest of Them All" is one of those retellings of a classic fairy tale that is probably going to impress adults more than the kiddies, although you will find some problematic elements in this 2002 television movie. This version is closer to the original tale told by Jacob Ludwig Carl Grimm and his brother Wilhelm Carl Grimm, but Caroline Thompson and Julie Hickson's teleplay comes up with some inventive elements, most of which work. But much as I like the veteran character actor Vincent Schiavelli, a six-foot-five-inch dwarf is a bit of a reach for me.
Anyhow, once upon a time, John (Tom Irwin) and Josephine (Vera Farmiga) were living happily together in the forest when they had a beautiful baby girl then named Snow White. However, Josephine dies soon after leaving John alone to fend for his baby. John buries his wife and starts on a journey to find food; at his darkest moment he is about to give up when he happens to awaken a genie known as the Green Eyed One (Clancy Brown), who will grant three wishes aa a reward for his release. John's first wish is for milk for Snow White. His second wish is to have his wife back, but this is beyond the Green Eyed One's power. Instead, he will provide John with a new queen and a kingdom to go with it. However, what John does not know is that his new queen, Elpseth (Miranda Richardson) is really his own hag of a sister (the crone is played by Karin Konoval), transformed into a beauty. Snow White crows up to be played by Kristin Kreuk (a.k.a. Lana Lang on "Smallville") and when the spell starts to fade and Elpseth's beauty begins to fade, the story takes a dark turn.

3.0 out of 5 stars Deserves at least three stars ! 13 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
This is a fairly well made version of Snow White, it's not high budget or anything amazing but me and the kids enjoyed watching it and would definately watch it again.The lead actors all do a good job and the sets and costumes are great,I can't say anything bad about it.
If you like fairytales or your looking for something to watch with children then, for the price, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I loved this film! All the stories you read about as a child. The feeling of being transported into such a magical and mesmirising place. It's so beautiful and enchanting. There's a few extra scenes that make this movie so much more enjoyable. It's set in such a peaceful almost tranquil atmosphere. That's magic in itself! Whether you're 13 or even 31 please watch this movie! It deserves the recognition!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT. 19 Jan 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What an amazing film. I was mesmerised, I simply couldn't take my eyes off the screen for a minute! I bought it after seeing it on TV and then my 9 year old son, husband and 81 year old mum watched it. They were equally enthralled by it. Amazing film. It was so unusual..so well done, such good actors who were perfect for the part that they were given to play.

Just SO interesting. When I watched it the second time I couldn't remember the whole story which was great..it felt like I was watching it for the first time..not many films can boast that, with all its twists and turns..the magical bits were great too ie the mirrors and the bear in the 'snow ball'. I could watch it again and again and still be captivated.

I even sent my daughter a copy!

Very highly recommended.

Perhaps I'm too critical, but I found this one of the less successful adaptations of the famous fairy tale. The story is pretty thin and silly, but the characters are even worse. Read more
