Description of image

I Lost My Body (2019, 12A - moderate sex, nudity, bloody images, infrequent strong language)

Gorgeous French animation which tells two parallel stories. One is about a young man trying to make a connection after the loss of his family and the other is about a severed hand trying to make its way back to its body. From the writer of contemporary French classic, Amelie, I Lost My Body is a moving story told in an exciting way.


This resource contains work on contemporary animation, character and a creative writing task which has an optional extension task for those studying French.

While this is film is a 12A, we would recommend watching with S4 and up as it contains some mature themes.

Available to watch on Netflix. While there is an English dubbed version, we recommend switching the audio to the original French with English subtitles to get the most out of this film with your class.
