7 days ago
Episode 72 of One Week Only! This week's key film is "The Girl Without Hands," a stunningly beautiful animated drama adapted from the Brothers Grimm fairy tale about a young peasant girl who loses her hands when she will not submit to the Devil. Directed and animated by Sébastien Laudenbach, this a gorgeous piece of art that tells a harsh & painful story of good vs evil with lush, painterly animation that flows effortlessly from scene to scene. Now Playing in New York, it's an incredible achievement in the field of animation. (34:20)
