Chinese Puzzle

Directed by Cedric Klapisch | Written by Cedric Klapisch

Life is complicated, just ask the ghosts of Hegel and Schopenhauer. That’s what Xavier does, a genial fortyish author who, wanting to remain close to his young children, trades the comforts of Paris for the cultural kaleidoscope of New York City. Camped out in the living room of his old friend, Isabelle, and her female companion, and making ends meet as a bicycle courier, the freewheeling Xavier rides headlong into a series of fresh emotional “complications” that just might be the thing he needs to get him past a creative slump. Eleven years ago, filmmaker Cédric Klapisch first introduced us to Xavier and his band of merry multi-nationals in the smashL’auberge espagnole. Two years later, Russian Dolls checked back in to see how life was treating them. Now Chinese Puzzle brings their stories to a frothy and satisfying conclusion that gives each of its stars their moment to shine.

 “…Serves as a seductive advertisement for modern urban living.”
- Charles Gant VARIETY
