Synopsis


Phantom Boy
An 11-year-old boy (voice of Gaspard Gagnol) undergoing treatment for cancer discovers that he has the ability to leave his hospitalized body and float around New York City as a spirit. With the help of an injured policeman (Edouard Baer) and a journalist (Audrey Tautou), he uses his powers to take down a criminal mastermind who's planning to cripple the metropolis with a computer virus. Phantom Boy was directed by Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol, whose previous work, 2010's A Cat in Paris, was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    Premise is simple: sick boy in hospital can 'project' himself out of his body and fly around the city. The boy meets a cop recovering from injuries he received in pursuit of 'The Man with the Broken Face'. They team up to catch bad guy. Sounds simple, right? This charming little movie does some heavy lifting along with the superhero action...the boy is getting chemotherapy. Never maudlin or manipulative, just deft storytelling, that young kids and adults can watch together.

    Kids loved it. A movie about a boy that is sick living at a hospital with his family visiting him, and a fantasy dream world he visits where he becomes a superhero and helps to stop robbery with a fellow cop.

    Loved this movie. This is a movie that both kids and adults can love. I think that the reason this movie was so moving to me is the fact that I have spent many hours in the hospital myself

    A refreshing change from the myriad Japanese and Ghibli Studios animations, and just as good, in the vein of Cat in Paris.
