Movie Info

Inspired by the photographic travels of Antione d'Agata, Danielle Arbid's worldly drama follows a French photographer who travels the globe to seek out the most extreme experiences imaginable. Thomas is a fearless shutterbug who's always willing to put his life on the line for the sake of a good shot. Upon falling under the spell of an enigmatic old man named Fouad Saleh, the photographer travels to the Far East in hopes of uncovering the secrets of the man who can no longer recall his own past. As the photographer soon finds out, it's often the most innocent endeavors that yield the most profound and transformative results. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Un Homme Perdu (A Lost Man)

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Appears to have also lost its script in transit. Pointless exercise in search for identity is a big step back by Lebanese-born filmer Danielle Arbid after her flawed but promising first feature, In the Battlefields.

The film is not nearly as willful or poetic in its abstraction, dangling enough stray bits of context over audiences' heads to help us get by but still leaving both us and itself caught in a confused lull.

Audience Reviews for Un Homme Perdu (A Lost Man)

I didn't immediately think about the political metaphor of West meets (Middle) East. Quite alrightee in general per the film narrative itself.
