Lost in Paris (Paris pieds nus) Reviews

November 29, 2017
... 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.

It's a little gem.

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

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.

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

Cruel comic mishaps may be this movie's raison d'tre, 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.

Lost in Paris is nonsensical by design, a comedy of the absurd that's always entertaining and occasionally pure.

Gordon and Abel incorporate elements of lighthearted musicals and silent-film comedy (a scene atop the Eiffel Tower evokes the derring-do of Harold Lloyd) and provide themselves plenty of opportunities to stretch their pliant, wiry physicality.

Thank goodness for Belgian duo Abel and Gordon. They are, simply put, the two funniest clowns working in cinema today.

Rather than reinventing the wheel, Abel and Gordon keep turning it with their own intimate touch.

Always inventive and occasionally hilarious ...
