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).

All Critics (80) | Top Critics (12)

A gloriously hand-animated existential fable that manages to be both genuinely sweet and thoroughly twisted.

Until I watched I Lost My Body, I never thought I'd sit with bated breath, rooting for a severed hand o defy the laws of physics and hurl itself up a ladder rung by rung.

Top Critic

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.
