Netflix has released a new trailer for I Lost My Body, a 2D animated feature that premiered at Cannes Film Festival and walked away as the first animated film to win its prestigious Nespresso Grand Prize.
Based on a novel by Amélie writer Guillaume Laurant, the footage above highlights a severed hand that’s escaped a Parisian laboratory in search of its whole self. During its adventures, the hand begins to remember its old life and being attached to a pizza delivery boy named Naoufel. It then begins to remember its owner’s love for a librarian named Gabrielle, which may hold the key to getting a grasp on how it got severed from him in the first place.
Following its win at the film festival, Netflix immediately seized worldwide distribution rights and is now expected to release in select theaters starting November 15. After that, I Lost My Body will be available on Netflix on November 29.
