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

Lots of laughs, good creative fun, not boring big-studio comedy formula
9 August 2017 | by psny-14544See all my reviews

Refreshing to see this light comedy not from the big studios with their lack of creativity and weightiness. Thoroughly enjoyed. No crazy effects, no big names, no formula, totally creative. We need more of these kinds of movies and less big studio, big name movies. This was an enjoyable night at the movies.
