Film Title: Snow White and the Huntsman

I love that somebody else appreciates the role fairy tales play in our lives. These are the stories we grow up with, and I think we try to make our lives plan out this way. I took a great class on Volkskünde at my college (University of Vermont) and a lot of the old fairy tales Die Gebrüder Grimm collected come from a variety of European countries, but the plot lines are so similar. The aesthetic of Märchen the German word for fairy tale is something that shows up in modern art whether it be fashion designers or photographers or directors. Colleen Atwood for example makes the best costumes ever, and all of the films are very mystical and are set back in time. Snow white as a fairy tale is the perfect representation of the time period between paganism and Christianity, which you see with the Witches crown that looks like medieval knight armor instead of an Elizabethan crown.
