An extended, truly extraordinary animation sequence opens this hard-line, good-humoured work from the London Women’s Film Group. The film decodes the mythic story of Rapunzel, re-framing the folk tale in a variety of unlikely ways, revealing its darker edges and exploring its role in the relationship between patriarchy and childhood.
