North Bay Premiere! "Fiona (Fiona Gordon), a shy and nerdy librarian, visits Paris for the first time to assist her myopic octogenarian Aunt Martha (Emmanuelle Riva). All manner of comic catastrophes ensue, mainly involving Dom (Dominique Abel), a gently anarchic homeless man who has yet to have an emotion or thought he was afraid of expressing, or an appetite he hasn’t tried to immediately satisfy. Gordon and Abel, the writer-directors of cult classics L’ICEBERG and THE FAIRY, and contemporary heirs apparent to Keaton and Tati, again construct a quietly dizzying succession of chance meetings, mistaken identities, impossible coincidences and elaborate stunts and gags. In their eccentric alternate universe, a backpack, old photos and some stray bottles of champagne somehow become magical erotic talismans. And you won’t want to miss the film’s main theme song, written by Loudon Wainwright III and sung by Kate and Anna McGarrigle." - Telluride Film Festival.
