Snow White: A Tale of Terror

[Wolves growling]

Whoa! Easy.

We'll be home soon, Lilliana.

Lilliana.

I can't breathe.

Dear God!

Karl!

[Karl screaming]

The baby.

You must save the baby.

She's coming.

Forgive me.

Forgive me.

[Baby crying]

Lilli.

Lilli.

Where is that child?

Oh, dear.

Lilli?

Don't play with me today, child.

I'm too old

and my backside is too easy a target.

There you are.

Your father has been asking for you.

You'll be the death of me.

Tell me the story, Nannau.

Put your two feet next to mine and we'll see.

Tell me, Nannau, please.

All right then.

Let me catch my breath.

One day, not so long ago...

your mother was sitting in the window...

looking out on the snow

that covered the land.

-She was sewing a cap.

-A winter cap?

A winter cap, yes.

And wishing for a child

to grow inside her belly.

Suddenly, she pricked her finger

with the needle...

and her blood fell into the snow.

And she looked and thought to herself,

"I would like a baby boy."

A little girl, Nannau.

[Laughing] Go on with you.

You know it better than I do.

A little girl with hair

as black as the ebony window frame...

and skin as pale as the snow...

and lips as red as blood.

[Nannau laughing]

Slow down, child.

Careful. Careful!

Good day.

-Good day.

-Good day.

Good day, Thomas.

Papa?

Papa?

What kind of mischief

have you been up to today?

I picked roses and irises from the garden

with Greta and Ilsa.

And I helped in the kitchen.

Did you read the scripture?

-Yes.

-Good.

Papa, why does God give us wings

when we die?

[Frederick clearing throat]

God gives us wings so we can...

fly out from paradise

and look down upon the world.

-Does Mama look down on me?

-Yes...

and she smiles when she hears your prayers.

Do you still love Mama?

Always.

Then why is she coming?

Come here, little bird.

Papa.

What?

What if she doesn't like me?

She will adore you.

Just as I do.

There she is! She's coming!

Hurry!

Where is Lilli?

Lilli.

My lady.

-You're welcome in my house.

-Thank you, Frederick.

Welcome, my lady.

Lady.

Lilliana, where have you been?

Look what I found.

It'll be a butterfly someday.

Lilli, I want you to meet Lady Claudia.

Can I put her in a box?

-Who?

-The caterpillar.

Let me see.

What will you do with her

when she grows wings?

I'll let her go.

I have a box with a special surprise inside.

Just for you.

Treat him well and he will always be faithful.

-Look, Nannau.

-Come along now, child.

It's beautiful.

Now it is yours as well.

This is my brother, Gustav.

God did not bless him

with a graceful tongue...

but he more than compensates

with the wit of his hands.

Now, I will leave you to unpack.

-What a lovely view.

-Yes, milady.

It was Lady Hoffman's favorite.

Was it?

Please be careful. It was my mother's.

Thank you. All of you.

Out. Out.

[Humming]

Tomorrow I will be a wife.

A Hoffman.

What would mother say

if she could see me now?

Here.

Would she be happy for me?

Would she smile?

Or would she be angry...

knowing that the world,

which so despised her...

has embraced me?

I do love him, Gustav.

And he will love me.

I just wanted to be sure

that you have everything you need.

Thank you, my lord.

But I am not well provided for at all.

How's that?

I have everything I need.

Your company.

You are very beautiful, Claudia.

I love to hear the sound of my name

on your lips.

-Your hands are cold.

-Warm them for me.

[Claudia singing]

[Children clapping]

[Chanting]

Amen.

Go on, child.

FREDERICK:
Lilli!

Lilli!

Odo?

Odo?

[Clanging]

[Cawing]

NANNAU:
Lilli?

[Shushing]
