On at the same time
Young cancer patient and bedridden Leo, desperate to escape the boredom of his hospital room, discovers he has a secret power- to become ‘Phantom Boy' with the ability to leave his body at will to explore the with complete freedom.
Leo immediately puts his powers to use, volunteering his gift to an injured police man in the hospital. A fearless journalist joins their detective team on the search a supervillain who is holding New York City to randsom.
Directors Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol previously teamed up for the Oscar nominated A Cat In Paris and here they team up again, bringing their uniquely French voices to the classic tale of cops and robbers, all animated in a delightfully hand drawn, Picasso inspired style. Filled with nods to Batman, Dick Tracey, Manhattan and The Sopranos, and brought to life by a voice cast including Vincent D'Onofrio, Audrey Tatou and Fred Armisen.
"This film packs an emotional wallop, but it also takes care of its noir crime-fighting business with considerable panache." – Epoch Times
