(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

In a French animated feature of feature-length a young boy loses his hand in a horrifying tools shop accident. We see in a flashback what led up to the incident. The style-- particularly the visual style--is enigmatic and surreal. Often the weird images seem to be heavily influenced by Bill Plympton and his Plymptoons. It is often hard to follow what is happening, especially so when we see through the eye of a fly and we see its connection with metaphysics. Jeremy Clapinis, the lead actor, directs. The boy finds as he loses his hand he gains understanding. Rating +2 (-4 to +4)
