Consensus: 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.

If you can forget logic ... and just go along for the ride, its absurdity can be endearing.

Lost in Paris is an indie film...that pays an homage to the days of the silent film star, Charlie Chaplin, through the antics of their lead characters.
