"It's funny that you find life so complicated." Today's indie trailer is for a film called Chinese Puzzle, or Casse-tête chinois in French, another third film in a charming romantic comedy trilogy about a couple and their lives over the years. The film features the same cast/characters from Cédric Klapisch's Russian Dolls and The Spanish Apartment, including Romain Duris as Xavier Rousseau, along with Audrey Tautou, Kelly Reilly, Toshiko Onizawa, Cécile de France and Sandrine Holt. While it is a French film, they do speak English and it takes place mostly in New York City, and doesn't look that bad at all. I'll check it out.
Watch the official trailer for Cédric Klapisch's Chinese Puzzle, found via YouTube:
A 40-year-old father of two, still finds life very complicated. When the mother of his children moves to New York, he can't bear them growing up far away from him and so he decides to move there, too. Chinese Puzzle (or Casse-tête chinois in French) is both written and directed by French filmmaker Cédric Klapisch, and follows the first two films Russian Dolls and The Spanish Apartment to complete a trilogy about this couple. Chinese Puzzle first opened in France in December 2013, and will be heading to US theaters thanks to Cohen Media Group. The film arrives in select US theaters starting May 16th this summer.
