The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art’s latest smARTfilm series continues at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5 with “Lost in Paris.”
Original titled “Paris pieds nus,” the 2017 French-Belgian comedy film was written, directed and co-produced by Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon, and stars Gordon as a Canadian librarian who meets a homeless man (played by Abel) in Paris.
The film also features Emmanuelle Riva and Pierre Richard.
It reportedly received three nominations at the 8th Magritte Awards, including Best Film, and won Best Editing for Sandrine Deegen.
The plot: A letter of distress brings Fiona from Canada to her aged aunt in Paris. Sadly on arrival her aunt has disappeared, and so begins an avalanche of disasters. Physical comedy is rarely practiced but shows up here with a smack to your funny bone.
The series is curated and hosted by TJ Faddis. The screening will be followed by a facilitated discussion.
Tickets, $10 to $12 each, are available via www.brownpapertickets.com (Event #4032519).
