I Lost My Body 2019 / The Oscar-nominated unconventional animation

8.2

Two storylines take place in this Parisian animation: one of a Moroccan immigrant who works as a pizza delivery guy, and the other of his hand, somehow no longer part of his body, but also going on a trip around Paris.

The hand storyline is not gory by the way, except for one or two very quick scenes. Mostly, this is a film about loneliness and not being able to find your way back, both as an immigrant who misses how they were raised and as a hand who misses its body.

Sporting some of the most beautiful animation work this year, this movie premiered at Cannes where it became the first-ever animated film (and Netflix film) to win the Nespresso Grand Prize.

    I cannot think of a more French movie that I have seen in a long long time. This is an amazing and unusual story set completely in Paris except for the flashbacks. I was hooked and in love when the convo between the delivery guy and the deliveree took place - being purposefully bland here - but that moment is when the amazing Frenchness of this movie is fully revealed in all it's glory. Loved, loved, loved this story. 3 people liked this review.

    It is a great experience. Lonliness shown from a alternate angle. A hand sesrching for its master and yhe master lost in his own lonliness trying to move on. 2 people liked this review.
