Sure, the rage is palpable in every cell, but poise and rational thinking are sadly lacking.

A distasteful sum total.

Morgenthaler views this business not only as a monstrously abusive exploitation of people and their bodies, but the height of anti-eroticism and anti-art that demands a complete emotional disconnect between viewer and performer.

It's very controlled and deliberate and gives the illusion that it has something to say, but its point is a bit unclear.

...a somber, sad and, in the end, hopeful animation that is a kindred spirit to such Japanese anime as Tokyo Godfathers in look, if not feel.

Audience Reviews for Princess

Audacious, original mix of live action and anime to tell a disturbing tale of corrupted youth.

Brilliant! Reminiscent of Bakshi's early work, this is one great vigilante film. The animation really works, adding a cartoony feel to a very grim and disturbing story. Choosing the "villain" to be the porn industry was another stroke of genius. If this doesn't make you feel a tad guilty the next time you decide to surf the net for that "special occasion" nothing will. Great stuff.

Princess is a violent revenge thriller about a man's journey to avenge her sister by destroying all pornography and people involved with the production of it. Combined with some animation and some live action, Princess is an interesting tale about the dark side of seemingly normal Denmark and redemption, August's role was absolutely perfect for Lindhardt. Although I do enjoy the plot, I can't help but dislike the ugly animation and having a child along side the protagonist constantly annoying him. Princess is definitely not an easy film to watch, but if you like to see something different (Or in my case, Thure Lindhardt) then his is definitely a film for you
