I Lost My Body/ J’ai perdu mon corps (N/C 15+)

In an eerie Parisian hospital, a disembodied hand inexplicably begins to move. Scurrying out into the bustling streets of the capital, the macabre manus begins a perilous quest to be reunited with the body it was separated from. Meanwhile, in another part of the city, lonely pizza delivery boy Naoufel still grieves for the tragic loss of his parents when he was a child. One rainy night, he fleetingly encounters a young woman named Gabrielle. Sensing a connection, Naoufel embarks on his own mission to track her down. While its morbid starting point suggests a modern-day The Beast with Five Fingers, Jérémy Clapin’s beautifully realised curio is not out to scare. Instead, this elegiac coming-of-age tale offers a wildly ambitious, profoundly moving meditation on grief, destiny and the eternal search for belonging.

Cast Hakim Faris, Victoire du Bois, Patrick Dassumçao
