Movie Info

A new documentary by Irish director Niall McCann, "Lost In France" explores the rise of Scotland's independent music scene in the '90s, led by cult label Chemikal Underground. Featuring The Delgados, Bis, Mogwai, Arab Strap, Franz Ferdinand and other seminal acts, this is an intimate film exploring friendship, creativity and music. On the journey, we revisit a defining, chaotic trip early in the musicians' careers, re-staging a concert in Brittany that connects the characters in life (and on stage) for the first time in many years.


Critic Reviews for Lost in France

All Critics (12)

Lost in France is a bittersweet and often hilarious tale of friendship, sheer luck and the absolute power music can have. Its message is one of get up and go.

Old photographs, grainy concert footage, VHS tapes and some heard-earned wisdom come together to create a strong sense of nostalgia and social commentary in Niall McCann's Lost In France.

Lost in France is both a touching oral history of beloved indie record label Chemikal Underground and a thought-provoking look at how the performance and production of independent music has radically shifted over the past two decades.

This is a warm, rich business.

Far more interesting than their personal ruminations are the musicians' reflections on Glasgow as a post-industrial creative hub and their memories of the welfare state that once enabled the scene to thrive.
