French Slapstick Comedy

Oscilloscope has debuted the new trailer and poster for Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon’s film Lost in Paris (aka Paris pieds nus), a candy-colored comedy that screened in Telluride last autumn.

Emmanuelle Riva also stars in this slapstick ode to Tati and Chaplin, which opens in New York City June 16, 2017. Check out the trailer along with an appropriately quirky poster and the official synopsis for Lost in Paris.

At this point I will be excited for anything that doesn’t think you have to use an F word every single line to make a statement or joke.

French Slapstick Comedy

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.
