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

    Aug 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.

    Aug 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.

    Aug 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.

    Jul 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.

    Jul 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.
