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

8.2
S
Staff

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.

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.

French animation, illustration artists and cartoonists have always been in the forefront of the art form. Always original and always dealing with a subject matter that is ethereal in nature. This movie is on that same level. It’s wonderful!
