Directed by: FIONA GORDON & DOMINIQUE ABEL
Starring: Fiona Gordon, Dominique Abel, Emmanuelle Riva, Pierre Richard
Prepare to accompany one kooky Canadian as she embarks on a whimsical trip through France’s great city in this charming and entirely unique comedy which stars the two long-time Brussels-based theatre actor-directors (and real life couple) Fiona Gordon and Dominique Abel.
Fiona’s (Gordon) orderly and precise life in Canada is thrown into chaos when she receives a letter of distress from her 93-year-old Aunt Martha (Academy Award-nominee Emmanuelle Riva, Amour, 2012) who is living in Paris. Immediately jumping to action, Fiona arrives in the city of lights only to discover that Martha has disappeared. So begins a hysterical search crammed with one spectacular disaster after another as Fiona desperately scours the city with her oversized red backpack, all the while tailed by an infatuated Dom (Abel), an affable, but annoying tramp who won’t leave her alone.
Brimming with brilliantly timed pranks, amazing tricks and intricately choreographed slapstick in the vein of Charlie Chaplin and Jacques Tati, Lost in Paris will have you leaving the cinema with a gleeful skip in your step and a renewed zest for life.
