Years after L'Auberge Espagnole and Russian Dolls, Xavier (Romain Duris)’s life is still a mess. His ex-wife Wendy (Kelly Reilly) has left him in Paris and taken their kids to New York. Always up for an adventure, broken-hearted Xavier follows them to the city and begins to piece together a life for himself amidst the cheerful chaos of downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn. An imminent deadline for his new novel, the realities of immigration, his ex girl-friend, Martine (Audrey Tautou) and best friend Isabelle (Cécile de France,) add to the vibrant jumble in this comically delightful conclusion to Cédric Klapisch’s trilogy. Now 40 years-old, the characters have left a bit of their naiveté and carefree attitude behind, as they struggle with responsibility and maturity while still going about life mischievously.
