Lost the Plot
As these characters try to better their lives, get rich quick, or work on their relationships, they learn that the best intentions and best laid plans often go awry. Dramatic obstacles, the force of destiny, or sheer bad luck twist their decision-making, in a series of comedies about winners and losers. Including some movie star charm, films made in Ealing, and a meet the filmmaker event, we finish the year with fun and cheer.

“I consider myself lucky firstly because I am French, secondly because I make movies, thirdly because I understand love.”
Hugh Bonneville is a journalist interviewing Eric Cantona as a pretentious Gallic filmmaker, whose philosophising starts to affect his rapports with his partner and friends. “An (un)romantic comedy that explores the very different attitudes to love held by the French and the English.
