          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 (R)-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.

The stakes are high in this comedy favorite that features classic routines including Mudder/Fodder and Betting Parlor.

          The breakout French hit of the 2017 Cannes International Film Festival, where it premiered in the Directors Fortnight to multiple, raucous standing ovations, writer/director Carine Tardieus charming romantic comedy JUST TO BE SURE is a winning tale of parenthood, love and family,... both lost and found. When lonely 45-year-old widower Erwan (the remarkable Franois Damiens, The Blier Family) discovers by accident that that man who raised him isnt his real father, he begins a search for his biological one. Thanks to a local private detective he soon locates the mischievous, 70-something Joseph (Le Havres Andre Wilms), whom it seems his mother may have known briefly. Erwan soon falls not only for his charm, but that of the impetuous Anna (a radiant Ccile de France), who has ties to them both. But the conflicting loyalties become compounded by the pregnancy of his own daughter (Alice de Lencquesaing), who defiantly refuses to name the father very soon Erwans families begin to collide, to unexpected, hilarious and moving effect. Offering a terrific showcase for her brilliant cast, director Carine Tardieu skillfully weaves a wholly-entertaining exploration of love, coincidence and human connection. Few films manage to pluck both the heartstrings and the funny bone as well as JUST TO BE SURE. Its a delight.
