FRANCE | 81 minutes | 2019

Naoufel falls in love with Gabrielle as a severed hand abandoned in a dissection room tries to reunite with its body. What follows is an expedition through Paris dotted with memories and encounters. After some decidedly experimental shorts (Histoire vertébrale, Skhizein), Jérémy Clapin tackles the animated feature in a work of great originality that snagged him the Critics’ Week Grand prix at Cannes. A poetic odyssey that questions our relationship to destiny.

In collaboration with Les Sommets du cinéma d'animation

"One of the strangest ideas ever committed to animation (...) ultimately proves to be one of the medium's most profound offerings." Variety
"... one of the most original and creative animated features I've ever seen: macabre, of course... but remarkably captivating and unexpectedly poetic in the process." Variety
"A sinuous, thought-provoking medley of creative leaps that coalesce into an unpredictable narrative gem, I Lost My Body is sit up and take notice animation." Screendaily
