Storyline

Martha, an eighty-year-old former Canadian dancer, has been living in Paris for decades. Now losing her head, she is threatened to be sent to an old people's home. No way. Martha decides to call her niece, Canadian librarian Fiona, for help. Alas, when her relative arrives in the French capital, Martha has disappeared. Worse, Fiona loses both her identity documents and money after falling into the Seine. Now alone in Paris, the young woman is desperate. It is at this point that Dom, a homeless man who lives in a tent on the Île aux Cygnes, unexpectedly comes into her life..., for better or worse. Written by Guy Bellinger

Unique, brilliant, unlike anything currently out there
5 February 2018 | by ReganRebeccaSee all my reviews

No two ways about it. I loved this movie. It's brilliantly unique and unlike anything currently out there. The film is about a Canadian woman who receives a letter from her Parisian aunt indicating that she needs help. She goes to rescue her and along the way is equal parts hindered and helped by a vagrant who she feels an attraction to.

What makes the film so great isn't the plot, which is relatively simple, but the slapstick nature of the film. It owes more to Charlie Chaplin, silent films, and clowning than to anything else, though it does incorporate sound and colour quite beautifully.

The film is pretty much guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. Highly recommend this one.
