Then it seems that your problem is a control rod to the handle has popped off, Can you get at the interior trim panel and remove it? If you can you will be able to put it back on then open it. After it's open, you will find the clip that secures either the actuator, or the handle broke or bent, replace the bent or broken parts. From inside you might be able to use a small flat blade screwdriver to move the latch and open the liftgate.
