LOST IN PARIS is filmed in the signature whimsical style of filmmakers Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon. They also star in the film with Abel portraying a strangely seductive, oddly egotistical vagabond and Gordon a small-town Canadian librarian. Fiona’s (Gordon) orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 88-year-old Aunt Martha (delightfully portrayed by Academy Award®-nominee Emmanuelle Riva) who is living in Paris. In response Fiona hops on the first plane she can and arrives only to discover that Martha has disappeared. In an avalanche of spectacular disasters, she encounters Dom (Abel), the affable, but annoying vagrant who just won’t leave her alone. Replete with the amazing antics and intricately choreographed slapstick that has come to define Abel and Gordon’s work, LOST IN PARIS is a wondrously fun and hectic tale of peculiar people finding love while lost in the City of Lights. [2017, France, Runtime: 83 min, mostly in English, Not Rated]

Justin Chang of “The Los Angeles Times” writes “Cruel comic mishaps may be this movie's raison d'être, but they are softened at every turn by the gentle humanity of the city's inhabitants, and by the unspoken sense that everything will turn out fine in the end.”
