Dir. Catherine Breillat in person! In Catherine Breillat’s continually surprising take on the classic fairy tale where three scatterbrained fairies manage to alter a curse of death placed upon a little girl. Now fated to fall asleep for 100 years after the girl’s hand is pierced in her sixteenth year, the fairies further bestow upon her the possibility of wandering far and wide in her dreams during those 100 years of sleep. Part of Rendez-Vous with French Cinema 2011.

NR, 82 Minutes, French

"The great Breillat takes on the classic fairy tale, and the results predictably have little to do with the story we know and love. Instead, she delivers an episodic, surreal tale of a young girl’s awakening—full of beguiling moments and images."
