The Girl Without Hands
In this stunningly gorgeous and innovative animated film based on the Brothers Grimm story, a miller sells his daughter to the devil to help save the family business.
The daughter's goodness and purity saves her soul, but the devil takes her hands as punishment. The sophisticated and dream-like animation style complements and contrasts the emotional depth of a story about betrayal and death. The New York Times put it this way: "Mr. Laudenbach's drawing eschews clean ink lines for a minimalist and impressionist aesthetic. He allows the water color swatches that stand in for characters and landscapes to create a dreamlike world that appears poetically endless".
