LOST IN PARIS
2016 Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon 83 min France part-subtitles Comedy Drama
Full of imaginative sight gags and physical comedy including a surprising and delightful tango, harkening back to great film comics like Tati and Chaplin, this charming story follows Fiona while she visits Paris for the first time to assist her myopic Aunt Martha. Catastrophes ensue, mainly involving Dom, a happy-go-lucky homeless man who has yet to have an emotion he was afraid of expressing. Preceded by the short: Little Dictator.
