Description

"Striking! A dazzling, imaginative film!" – Monica Castillo, The New York Times

Sébastien Laudenbach's utterly transporting, hand-painted masterpiece unfolds with the dream logic of a fairytale, taking you into the darker, primal origins of the Brothers Grimm's tales. In hard times, a miller sells his daughter to the Devil. Protected by her purity, she escapes, but in revenge the Devil deprives her of her hands. Abandoning family and home, she sets off into the woods and begins her long journey towards the light.

With magic and cruelty, sublime beauty and tenderness, The Girl Without Hands is at once timeless and unlike anything you have seen before, a stunning example of animation as a powerful cinematic art form for adult moviegoers.
