All Critics (22) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (21) | Rotten (1)

  • Writer-director (and co-editor) Sbastien Laudenbach strives and largely succeeds in his effort to produce a finished animated film with the vivacity and evocative power of a rough sketchbook.

    August 11, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This striking animated adaption of a Brothers Grimm fairy tale makes a lean and dark story feel sweeping and warm.

    August 10, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Girl is a welcome reminder that animation doesn't have to be synonymous with realistically rendered CG, but can be a means of artistic expression as uniquely personal as a signature.

    August 2, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Laudenbach's style is haunting. Some of his artwork stops you in your tracks. What he does best is create a palpable sense of dread without pushing, without tilting into melodrama.

    July 21, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Although this film's style is soft and colorful, it does not rub out the emotional sharpness of a story dealing with betrayal, suicide and death.

    July 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A Brothers Grimm tale is given a rather grim if beautifully rendered makeover in The Girl Without Hands (La Jeune fille sans mains), which marks the feature debut of French animation director Sebastien Laudenbach.
