Berwick Film Society: Lost in Paris

Tickets: £8.50 (£7 concs), BFS members free
Venue: Main House Theatre
Running Time: 1h23m
12A

Peppered liberally by the crazily-choreographed antics with which they are fondly identified, director / actor / screenwriter duo Fiona Gordon and Dominique Abel (The Fairy) transport themselves to the city of love. She, a small-town librarian in search of a missing older relative; he an enterprising vagrant, combing the city for his next draught-free pitstop.  Inevitably their paths cross and in a hectic tangle of limbs, their two lives become embroiled in a non-stop, whimsical adventure.

Starring as the delightful straying aunt, the late actor Emmanuelle Riva plays here her finale, aged 87. Her debut performance was in the classic Hiroshima mon amour (1959) and more recently, the Oscar-winning Amour (2012).

“…pure of vision, an ambitious accomplishment and undeniably sweet” - Time Out

“A charming mix of antiquity, modernity, humour and visual ambition” - Little White Lies
