Discover more about “Lost in Paris” (Paris pieds nus)

A fun and hectic tale of peculiar people finding love while lost in the City of Light. Filmed in Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon’s signature whimsical style, Lost in Paris (“Paris Pieds Nus”) features the Belgium-based filmmakers as a small-town Canadian librarian and a strangely seductive vagabond. When Fiona’s orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 88-year-old Aunt Martha (delightfully portrayed by the late Emmanuelle Riva, Oscar-nominated for Amour) who is living in Paris, she hops on the first plane she can. She 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. Lost in Paris with its trademark antics and intricately choreographed slapstick, will have you leaving the cinema with a gleeful skip in your step and a renewed zest for life.


Fiona is a Canadian librarian who flies to Paris and discovers that her 88-year-old aunt is missing. As Fiona scours the city looking for her, she encounters Dom, a friendly but annoying tramp who won’t leave her alone.
