Lost Paradise by Director Deboise is the story of a family who live far away from a metropolitan area. Lucie lives with her father, Hugo, since her mother left them. Unlike her peers, she barely leaves the house; she grows up in a sheltered environment, helping her father around the farm. Hugo is being an overprotective parent to protect her innocence, but her longing for her mother grows every day and she reaches puberty. Seen from outside, the small house where Lucie and Hugo live is almost like a paradise, a perfect private space completely away from the complicated, loud modern society.
The story gets more interesting when an intruder breaks into this “paradise.” The intruder is actually Lucie’s mother, whom Lucie has missed so much, but Hugo is scared of losing his daughter. He locks up his wife in a toolshed and she sets the house on fire after the escape. It is the moment where a disorganized family reaches its peak. Weirdly, the loss of the paradise presents Lucie a happy sense of freedom. Lucie makes a big smile while running away from the house burnt to ashes towards a forest. She has become an adult and is leaving for somewhere that she is supposed to be. In this sense, her bright smile gives the audience a sense of freedom as well.
