Just doesn't work
What a disappointment. I truly wanted to like this going into this knowing Isabelle Huppert was playing a modern dark comedy version of the evil queen.
A revisionist Snow White as an dark comedy with erotic elements? sounds perfect.
But the end product is terrible, not funny at all and instead, trite,predictable and just a jumble of post feminist cliches. The feminist would have been inherent in the plot there was need need to make it so hamhanded. In fact it ends up being exploitative of women.
Hubbert and Poelvoorde are wasted, my guess embarrassed in the end to even be in this mess.
