Movie Info

Confused about where his career went wrong, film director Emil Forrester receives an unexpected invitation to attend a retrospective of his work at The Karastan International Film Festival. On arrival in Karastan, Emil is flattered by the attention he receives and soon finds himself persuaded by the country's benign yet massively corrupt President Aleluyev to direct an epic retelling of the story of the medieval hero and founder of the country, with drunken actor Xan Butler already on-board to star. Emil finds himself desperately struggling to create a local blockbuster in a language he doesn't understand, against a political backdrop he has no idea about and with a questionable array of cast and crew.


Critic Reviews for Lost in Karastan

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

A good-natured but laugh-deficient British comedy.

January 19, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Too daft for drama and too solemn for satire. Merely lost.

January 2, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

[An] engaging but rather underwhelming affair.

January 25, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A missed opportunity.

January 22, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

One thing lost in Karastan seems to have been a certain element of humour.

January 22, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Snarky humor and a wonderfully put-on Matthew Macfadyen are the best reasons to see a satire that ultimately seems to forget where it was heading.
