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

The music and imagery was great, but some stuff was meh
3 December 2019 | by deatheart251See all my reviews

The whole movie flows really well. I liked everything to do with the hand. The story of the kid was poetic at times, and at other times walked the line of creepy. Those parts were the weaker elements for me. Not a perfect film, so I would feel weird saying masterpiece, but it did feel inventive, and I liked it enough that it's one of my favorites of the year.
