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.

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (11)

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

An exercise in whimsicality that might leave Wes Anderson fatigued.

Lost in Paris is occasionally self-indulgent, although one could argue that's part of its charm.

Jul 14, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

If you can forget logic ... and just go along for the ride, its absurdity can be endearing.

Jul 13, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

"Lost in Paris" grows a bit tiresome at feature length, but it's a winning divertissement.
