The Girl Without Hands La jeune fille sans mains

Se?bastien Laudenbach / France / 2016 / 76 min / French

In hard times, a miller sells his daughter to the Devil. Protected by her purity, she escapes but is deprived of her hands. Walking away from her family, she encounters the goddess of water, a gentle gardener and the prince in his castle. A long journey towards the light... but in spite of her resilience and the new protection of the handsome prince’s estate, the Devil devises a plan of his own.


"I drew the film from the beginning to the end, without any line testing, so without seeing the results. Only at the end of the first month I shot the first sequences to see if the style worked, to see if it was okay for me. For the rest of the residency that I had in Italy, I drew and drew and drew… It was insane.

This way of making an animation film, I think it’s visible in the end. Because it’s very much based on sketch, the movement of the hand. There is a kind of energy. Also I worked with music on; I was in a kind of trance. Different kinds of music – like electro pop music, French bands like Sexy Sushi. Each day I began with this song ‘Je Refuse De Travailler’, which means, “I refuse to work”.
