In her early thirties, broke, and in the wake of a humbling breakup, a spirited, yet rudderless young woman finds herself struggling to get by in the bustling Parisian metropolis; however, if she can make it there, she'll make it anywhere.
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
This movie is theater of the absurd. You just have to float along with it and you will chuckle at the ridiculousness of it. It is full of little surprises and the scenery of Paris makes for a great backdrop.
I can understand why one person wrote a scathing, one-star review but that person must been expecting something very different. Don't have any expectations with this film, just follow along with the pointless silliness of it and you'll enjoy it.
