I Lost My Body
(J'ai Perdu Mon Corps)

  •   Jérémy Clapin
  •   France
  •   Global Currents, In Focus: French Animation

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 hairraising 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 (Amélie).

“A sinuous, thought-provoking medley of creative leaps that coalesce into an unpredictable narrative gem, I Lost My Body (J’ai perdu mon corps) is sit up and take notice animation.”
