92% on Rotten Tomatoes review

Sally Potter’s 71-minute film The Party is a short, sharp, funny shock of a movie; a theatrical drawing-room comedy which plays out in real time with elegance and dispatch, cantering up to a cheeky punchline twist which leaves you laughing over the final credits. It’s written and directed by Potter, and the action is starkly lit and shot in black and white by Russian cinematographer Aleksei Rodionov. (Peter Bradshaw for the Guardian)

Lost in Paris (12A)

"A nostalgic yet refreshing take on romance in Paris both warms and delights"


Fiona is a Canadian librarian who flies

to Paris and discovers that her 88-year-old aunt is missing. As Fiona scours the city looking for her, she encounters Dom, a friendly but annoying tramp who won't leave her alone.

Most of the pleasures of “Lost in Paris” come from watching the coincidences multiply, a case of mistaken identity at a funeral and a bit of acrobatic derring-do on the Eiffel Tower.

 

"With its visually stylish sight gags and broad physical comedy, “Lost in Paris” blends the whimsy of Wes Anderson with the inventive slapstick of Jacques Tati"

Pat Padua (Washington Post)


Lost in Paris is whimsical to a fault, but its fanciful light-heartedness earns the audience's indulgence with charming performances and an infectious absurdity.(Rotten Tomatoes)

Running time 83 mins
