PHANTOM BOY (2015 Toronto International Film Festival, Toronto Canada)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Phantom Boy—an animated take on out of body experiences and how that could work in a police investigation—is just plain wonderful. Watch it.

Storyline

Eleven-year-old Léo (voice of Gaspard Gagnol) develops an illness that requires hospitalization. While there  he makes friends with a police officer, Alex (voice of Edouard Baer) who was in pursuit of a man called The Face (voice of Vincent D’Onfrio) when he broke his leg and became hospitalized. When Alex discovers Léo has the special power of being able to move in and out of his body at will while asleep, they team to solve the case.
