Filmed in Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon’s signature whimsical style, “Lost in Paris” stars the filmmakers as a smalltown Canadian librarian and a strangely seductive, oddly egotistical  vagabond. When Fiona’s (Gordon) orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 93-year old Aunt Martha (delightfully portrayed by 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.

Fiona Gordon (1957), Dominique Abel (1957) Canadian actress, director and author born in Australia; and a Belgian actor, director and author. Since 1980 they make up the Abel et Gordon duo. They have also started a producing company together, “Courage, mon amour,” where they create original theatre performances and films referring to pre-war comedy and burlesque, and the manner of acting typical of silent movie actors such as Charlie Chaplin and Max Linder.
