NOT RATED

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®-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.

Thank goodness for Belgian duo Abel and Gordon. They are, simply put, the two funniest clowns working in cinema today.
Peter Debruge | Variety | Full Review

Lost in Paris is nonsensical by design, a comedy of the absurd that’s always entertaining and occasionally pure.
Joe Morgenstern | Wall Street Journal | Full Review

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.
Serena Donadoni | RogerEbert.com | Full Review

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