Chinese Puzzle

“Chinese Puzzle is the third film in writer-director Cedric Klapisch’s “Spanish Apartment” series. This romantic comedy-drama stars Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris and Kelly Reilly, and was released theatrically in early 2014.

 Klapisch’s series began with 2002’s “Spanish Apartment,” in which a French international finance student named Xavier (Duris) left his girlfriend (Tautou) to move to Barcelona to learn Spanish. In 2005’s “Russian Dolls,” the student was trying to make it as a writer, traveling between Paris and London and juggling the women in his life. In “Chinese Puzzle,” Xavier is still looking to find his place in the world and after the mother of his children moves to New York with the kids, the heartsick Xavier goes after them.”

A special thanks to Carol Cuddy and Atlantic Cinemas for making this screening possible.
