Movie Info

Filmed in Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon's signature whimsical style, LOST IN PARIS stars the filmmakers as a small-town Canadian librarian and a strangely seductive, oddly egotistical vagabond. When Fiona's (Gordon) orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 88-year-old Aunt Martha (delightfully portrayed by Academy Award (R)-nominee Emmanuelle Riva) who is living in Paris, 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 tramp 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.

Critic Reviews for Lost in Paris (Paris pieds nus)

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (15)

... the story of a Canadian naif (Gordon) who is stranded in Paris and falls for a local Chaplinesque tramp (Abel) is told with such broad strokes (lots of double-takes and achingly obvious pratfalls) that it eventually becomes wearisome.

A charming mix of antiquity, modernity, humour and visual ambition.

November 24, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's a little gem.

November 24, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The film throws in anarchic physical comedy with picture postcard-style imagery of Paris at its most alluring. It's a generally winning combination.

November 22, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's as infuriating as it is inventive, as it Just... Never... Stops. It is Paris Through the Looking Glass.

November 20, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

An exercise in whimsicality that might leave Wes Anderson fatigued.
