People call the French capital the City of Love. But a new clip from the film Lost in Paris suggests it is also the city-of-people-looking-like-they-might-fall-off-the-Eiffel-Tower-for-comedic-effect.
In the movie, Fiona Gordon plays a small-town Canadian librarian named Fiona whose orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 88-year-old, Paris-dwelling Aunt Martha, who is portrayed by the legendary Emmanuelle Riva (filmmaker Alain Resnais’ Hiroshima Mon Amour). Fiona flies to France, only to discover that Martha has disappeared. To make matters seemingly worse, she encounters the annoying, egotistical Dom (Dominique Abel), who won’t leave her alone.
This Telluride-screened comedy is written and directed by Gordon and Abel, whose previous collaborations include 2008’s Rumba and 2011’s The Fairy. Watch the film’s trailer below and, exclusively, that new clip, above.
Lost in Paris arrives in theaters this Friday.
