J’ai perdu mon corps / I Lost My Body

by Jérémy Clapin Feature Film Competition

Young pizza delivery man Naoufel has lost his right hand. How could this have happened? Not addressed by Naoufel himself, this question is tackled through the perspective of his severed hand itself in Jérémy Clapin’s captivating animation film. In search of its lost body, the severed hand goes on an adventurous odyssey through the remotest corners of Paris, and memories of its former life begin to surface: children’s hands that want to catch a fly, wind flowing through fingers, the first push on the love of his life Gabrielle’s doorbell. As the film effortlessly succeeds in turning a severed hand into a character of identification, a beautiful, unfathomable love story starts to develop. The highly-acclaimed winning film of this year’s “Semaine de la critique” at Cannes offers an original, deeply moving cinematic journey that will sweep you off your feet.
