On one hand, the bog-standard love story amuses but never resonates. Fortunately, the other hand fights rats, dodges traffic, and does all sorts of insane things you’ve never witnessed in a film.

At once creepy and melancholic, I Lost My Body employs its unlikely horror scenario to channel something deeper and darker, going beyond the mere sensational to arrive at the personal.

If it’s slightly hampered by a generic love story and pie-in-the-sky teenage pontificating, I Lost My Body should still rank among the year’s most original and peculiar films. Hands down.

Anyone who’s willing to meet this movie on its own terms and roll with the dream logic it requires will be rewarded with a resonantly cathartic saga about the struggle to find beauty in a world that forces us to leave parts of ourselves behind.

I’d hazard to say 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.

A meditation on fractured identity, heightened by the hand’s poignant hope for reconciliation. Director/co-writer Clapin sensitively combines melancholy with an ultimately life-affirming message.
