  1. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    A wonderful way to tell this fairy tale... and the campy set design is great...

  2. Amanda Violetto's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    fairytale + freud on a twisted, dark n funny ecstasy trip

  3. EdieEmm's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    A film all at once bewitching & surrealist, innocent & eccentric, rakishly charming & unflinchingly sophisticated. If I'm gonna be swept off my feet, let it be by Demy! In the process, he pulls off subverting both the moralistic conservatism of the fairy tale and the seriousness of the 'art film'. Check out: 1) This hilarious attempt at recreating Cake D'Amour http://bit.ly/2xusuKy; 2) The wacky prog-rock poster art.

  4. Rafael Zen's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    Oh my, what a way to tell a princess story. Demy's crafty tale brings such visual delight that's impossible not to miss this kind of cinema maker: it almost makes you hate CGI-fetish from contemporary fables - the kind that pukes and explodes things right at your face. The costumes, the scenario, the art design - it immediately teleports you into fantasy. Beautiful work and beautiful world.

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    Sans démériter, Demy n'arrive jamais à la féerie souhaitée... www.cinefiches.com

  6. Ruiz Buñuel's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    One of the few films that manages to make up for a lack of substance with a beautiful packaging.

  7. kartina obskura's rating of the film Donkey Skin

  8. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    Rewatched and re-loved. TOP film, a brilliant, intelligent and ironic adaptation of the literary fairytale by Charles Perrault. There's nothing more visually beautiful than Peau d'âne, each frame is perfect and full of detail and colour, I'm in love again but at the same time it's terrible for me to see a donkey skin, even if it is faux.

  9. Hati Le's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    The fairy godmother is such a bitch, i love her!

  10. Rice Dream Girl's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    To watch the princess, draped in a donkey skin, bounding through exquisite fantasy scenes in slow-motion is an experience of wonderful haunted beauty.

  11. fmuliant's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    Fantastic visuals, very weird movie. Even weirder during the last scene where the helicopter came. Nonetheless nothing like it I've seen before.

  12. unrealhumanbeing's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    so fabulous costume and very sense of humor

  13. Bekriah M's rating of the film Donkey Skin

  14. C's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    (of all the fairy tales in all the land it had to be this one though?)

  15. Tatami's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    Pretty colours, oh and pretty colours

  16. Adèle Vivet's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    Mon enfance restera toujours marqué par cette esthétique parfaitement maîtrisée. À voir et à revoir, en se laissant séduire par la mièvrerie assumée de l'interprétation de Demy.

  17. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    This was so sweet- Jacques Demy <3!

  18. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    I kept thinking: "What is this? What is this!?" An unsettling mixture of the clumsy and the graceful, though probably that's the intention all along.

  19. Christophe's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    Une garde robe et un décorum qui laisse à "désir"er

  20. Henri's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    Féérie et enchantement sans excès de mièvrerie.

  21. imaqua@hotmail.com's rating of the film Donkey Skin

  22. James Mackin's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    Cinema of excess. Jacques Demy reminds me of Kanye West reciting Snow White in this film.

  23. maria's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    Film enchanteur parmi les films enchanteurs. Folie, délicatesse, bonté et cruauté. C'est une pure merveille. A voir et revoir et revoir encore.

  24. Veronique Champion's rating of the film Donkey Skin

    un grand bond dans le temps ... rêve magie mêlés aux sentiments
