13th February 2017 sees the UK DVD release of Phantom Boy, an exciting and touching animated movie from the Academy Award- nominated writers and directors of A Cat In Paris. Directed by Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli, the film can be watched in the original French version with English subtitles, featuring the voice talents of Fred Armisen, Vincent D’Onofrio and Jared Padalecki, but also as an English language version with the voice of Audrey Tautou.
Set in the shadowy streets and alleyways of New York, the film tells the story of Leo, an 11-year-old boy with a secret. A mysterious illness has transformed him into a phantom boy, able to leave the confines of his body and explore the city as a ghostly apparition. While in the hospital, he befriends Alex, a New York City cop injured while attempting to capture a nefarious gangster who has taken control of the city’s power supply, throwing the metropolis into chaos. Now they must form an extraordinary duo, using Leo’s phantom powers and Alex’s detective work to foil the plot and save New York from destruction.
It has a PG-rating and is a great family film, combining a tender story and an action-packed adventure so it will appeal to everyone. We joked that it was like a cross between The Snowman (when he goes flying above the city and countryside) and a superhero movie like Superman.
