Lost and Found

The world of ‘Lost and Found’ is one of calm, quiet shots, marked by their complete absence of dialogue, and supplemented instead by soulful songs. The story carries a similar quiet gravity that says more in its silence than any verbal exchanges could have conveyed.

At its opening, a stranger posts a notice, a plea to help find a missing man. Soon we are introduced to the man in question himself. He comes across as an eccentric character who is fixated on the moles on his body, along with measurements of his height.

When the narrative reveals the reasoning behind it all, the writing and screenplay of the film present a victorious flourish, tying the various components together into a cohesive whole about what it truly means to belong or, on the contrary, be completely alone by oneself.
