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

One of he funniest movies in a long time
8 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time. I loved the slapstick and the facial expressions and postures of the two main characters. They were perfect together. One delightful scene was when the character Martha and her former lover dance while sitting on a bench, and all you see is their feet moving to delightful music. Ditto for the uproariously funny dance scene between Fiona and Don at Maxim's. The music "Swimming Song" by Loudon Wainwright III was delightful and accompanied the action so well! I loved the deadpan responses of many of the French people that Fiona and Dom came into contact with. Almost every scene was hysterically funny. I had to see it twice. The second time was even better.
