Movie Info

In a Parisian laboratory, a severed hand escapes its unhappy fate and sets out to reconnect with its body in this Cannes Critics' Week selection. During a hair-raising escapade across the city, the extremity fends off pigeons and rats alike to reunite with pizza boy Naoufel. Its memories of Naoufel and his love for librarian Gabrielle may provide answers about what caused the hand's separation, and a poetic backdrop for a possible reunion between the three. Based on the novel "Happy Hand" by Academy Award (C) nominee Guillaume Laurant (AMELIE).

It's a strange, sad yarn, full of yearning.

Anyone who's willing to meet this movie on its own terms and roll with the dream logic it requires will be rewarded with a resonantly cathartic saga.

November 15, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

As inventive a piece of animation as you're likely to see, the extraordinary "I Lost My Body" is about a hand with a mind of its own, and if that sounds a little crazy, this dark, strange and altogether wonderful feature will make you believe.

November 15, 2019 | Full Review…

A visually sumptuous slice of macabre storytelling that works best when it uses its director's magical sense of composition and less when it feels weighed down by narrative.

November 15, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The movie abounds with imagination, but is unfortunately too unnerving - even nauseating - to enjoy.
