'A spectacular animated achievement' - Playlist review by Gregory Ellwood

‘One of the most original and creative animated features I’ve ever seen.’ - Variety review by Peter Debruge

Winner of the Critics' Week Grand Prize at Cannes, Jérémy Clapin’s extraordinary and captivating animation debut about a severed hand that escapes its unhappy fate and sets out to reconnect with its body. 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 Guillaume Laurant's novel Happy Hand, I Lost My Body is co-written by Guillaume Laurant who wrote Amélie and features a terrific score from Dan Levy, best known for his band The Dø.

Part of Fanomenon, LIFF 2019’s selection dedicated to cult and genre films.
