I LOST MY BODY
J’AI PERDU MON CORPS
2019, Netflix, 81 min, France, Dir: Jérémy Clapin

Romance, mystery and adventure intertwine as a young man falls in love and a severed hand scours Paris for its owner in Jérémy Clapin’s mesmerizing feature debut. Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature and Winner of the Nespresso Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. “It’s one of the most original and creative animated features I’ve ever seen: macabre, of course - how could it be otherwise, given the premise? - but remarkably captivating and unexpectedly poetic in the process.” – Peter Debruge, Variety.


THE YOUNG AND PRODIGIOUS T.S. SPIVET
2013, The Weinstein Company, 105 min, France/Canada, Dir: Jean-Pierre Jeunet

This beguiling big-screen adaptation of Reif Larsen’s popular novel follows Tecumseh Sparrow Spivet (Kyle Catlett), a 10-year-old inventor who travels on his own from his family’s Montana home to Washington, D.C. to accept a prize from the Smithsonian Institution. Helena Bonham Carter and Judy Davis costar in the film, which earned a César Award winner for best cinematography. “THE YOUNG AND PRODIGIOUS T.S. SPIVET is the perfect 3-D vehicle and Jeunet takes full advantage, offering a feast of amusing visual flourishes suited to the book's playfulness.” - Jay Weissberg, Variety.
