This French film follows the journey of a severed hand as it attempts to reunite with its owner. Through flashbacks, we discover the life it used to know when it was attached to Naoufel, a young pizza deliveryman who falls for a customer. It is a gorgeous film about loss, discovery, and moving forward. If you loved Amélie, you’ll love this movie from the same writer.
It’s hands down one of my favorite movies. Two thumbs up.
