I Lost My Body
Friday, January 17 - Thursday, January 23, 2020
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 nominee Guillaume Laurant (Amelie).
“Stunning! I LOST MY BODY is an animated gem. A movie that will make you think about human connection in more ways than one. This film is a journey of the heart.” – Pete Hammond, Deadline
