Adult 2D animated feature The Girl Without Hands (La Jeune fille sans mains) is now available on Blu-ray + DVD Combo from GKIDS and Shout! Factory. In celebration of the new release, AWN is giving away a free copy to three lucky winners!
The Girl Without Hands is the audacious feature debut from acclaimed short filmmaker Sébastien Laudenbach, a beautiful and dreamlike take on the Brothers Grimm tale produced by French production company Les Films Sauvages. Hand-painted with lush, evocative details, the film was lauded by critics during its 2017 theatrical run, and has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Available starting February 20, the Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack includes the theatrical trailer, along with an interview with Laudenbach and several of the director’s previous short films.
Premiering in the ACID section at Cannes, The Girl Without Hands was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the César Awards, and won both the Jury Prize and the award for Best French Film at the Annecy International Animation Festival in 2016.
Laudenbach’s previous work includes the black sand-animated short Vasco, which screened as part of the Cannes Critics’ Week in 2010, and Journal, which won a Clermont-Ferrand Fest Youth Prize in 1998. Laudenbach was also the recipient of an Emilie Reynaud Prize in 2015 for Daphne ou la belle plante, which he co-directed with Sylvain Derosne.
