Storyline

In a Parisian laboratory, a severed hand escapes its unhappy fate and sets out to reconnect with its body. During a hair-raising escapade across the city, the extremity fends off pigeons and rats alike to reunite with pizza boy Naoufel. Its memories of Naoufel and his love for librarian Gabrielle may provide answers about what caused the hand's separation, and a poetic backdrop for a possible reunion between the three. Based on Guillaume Laurant's novel "Happy Hand." Written by Netflix

Best film of the year
10 November 2019 | by heurtelnSee all my reviews

I like originals movies, with ideas and good mastery of technicals aspects and real knowledge about cinema. This movie is all of that. Yes, it's a small budget and animation is not the best skill of the movie, but this lack of money is more than compensated by beautiful scenery and the poetry that emerges.
