Lost In Paris (12)

Directors Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon. Comedy

Following their festival smashes Rumba and Fairy, Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon are back with the whimsical Lost in Paris. Told in their signature vaudeville style, it's a wonderfully composed comedy that evokes the physical humour of Jacques Tati and Buster Keaton. After receiving a letter from her visually impaired (and ever so slightly senile) Aunt Martha, Fiona takes the trip from Canada to France. Except Martha has disappeared, putting Fiona in the middle of a calamitous hunt for the missing nonagenarian. After a mishap while taking a picture at the Eiffel Tower, Fiona finds herself without any of her belongings, soaking wet and, as the title suggests, Lost in Paris. A chance meeting with a quirky homeless man, Dom, sees a relationship blossom across the city s famous sights and streets.

Starring Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon, Emmanuelle Riva, Pierre Richard

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Quirky contemporary French-Canadian film with references to Jaques Tati.

Classic French entertainment with some very funny moments. There were memorable dance scenes involving serious tango moves in a restaurant, and those while seated at a park bench. A bit quirky but certainly worth seeing.
