Lost in Frenchlation is proud to be working together with the Champs-Elysées Film Festival to bring you a world premiere of ‘C’est Qui Cette Fille?’ as part of the highly anticipated 2018 festival!

Gina, an American flight attendant, falls in with a Parisian bartender on a layover only to find herself tangled in a web of deception, delusion and unrequited amour fou. – Official Synopsis
“Enthralling” – Indiewire
“Delightfully Twisted” – The Playlist
“The lost-in-translation comedy excels here mostly because Gina never once feels self-conscious about flubbing her way through conversations. It’s a hard thing for a film to convey without over-psychologizing its subjects, but “Thirst Street” fittingly captures this in snapshots and glimpses. The result is a slow-motion car crash that you intimately experience from both in and outside the car. There’s just enough distance to allow for wisdom but not enough so as not to feel the impact.” – Roger Ebert
