Netflix has released the trailer for an upcoming animated film “I Lost My Body” which was named the best film of the independent International Critics’ Week section at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival and awarded the Nespresso Grand Prize in the section. Netflix acquired worldwide rights (excluding China, Benelux, Turkey, France) to the film which was originally titled “J’ai perdu mon corps”. “I Lost My Body” launches on November 15th.
In a Parisian laboratory, a severed hand escapes its unhappy fate and sets out to reconnect with its body in this Cannes Critics’ Week selection. 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 the novel “Happy Hand” by Academy Award© nominee Guillaume Laurant (AMELIE).
