I LOST MY BODY

Oscar® nominee, Best Animated Feature

[J'AI PERDU MON CORPS]

French writer-director-animator Jérémy Clapin's boundlessly inventive mediation on loss, love and the (quite literal) desire for reconnection became the first animated winner of the Cannes Critics' Week Grand Prize last year, and has since racked up a slew of international awards, including the Audience Award and Cristal Award for Best Feature at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Based on the novel "Happy Hand" by Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter Guillaume Laurant (AMÉLIE), I LOST MY BODY follows the fortunes of a plucky severed hand, which escapes from a Parisian medical lab on a mission to find its body. Embarking on a journey across the city, complete with some nail-biting escapes from pigeons and rats, the hand makes its way toward pizza delivery boy Naoufel, all the while uncovering the young man's distant memories of his late parents, his first love and the events that led to the hand's untimely severing. DIR/SCR Jérémy Clapin; SCR Guillaume Laurant, from his novel "Happy Hand"; PROD Marc Du Pontavice. France, 2019, color/b&w, 81 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
