Synopsis by Mark Deming
The population of the City of Lights is reduced to two in this offbeat comedy from France. Gervais (Eric Judor) is a police detective who one morning discovers that the city of Paris has been mysteriously abandoned, with almost nobody to be seen. The only other person Gervais runs across happens to be Curtis (Ramzy Bedia), a wanted criminal Gervais has been tracking for some time. Even though there aren't any fellow officers on hand to help handle the arrest, Gervais is determined to capture Curtis anyway, especially since there isn't much else to do, and the two pursue one another through the empty streets (with Curtis occasionally giving chase in a race car). In time, Gervais and Curtis grow tired of shouting and running after one another and they begin to wonder if the bad karma they're generating has something to do with the empty streets. Seuls Two (aka Two Alone In Paris) was directed by Eric Judor and Ramzy Bedia, who also contributed to the screenplay as well as playing Gervais and Curtis; it was their first project behind the camera.
