Amelie star Audrey Tautou heads to the Big Apple in Chinese Puzzle, the delightful conclusion to French film director Cédric Klapisch's globe-trotting romantic trilogy, and we have an exclusive clip from the film!
Following his exploits in L'Auberge Espagnole and Russian Dolls, in which he traveled to Barcelona and London in search of love and meaning in life, Xavier's (played by Romain Duris) life is still a mess. His ex, Wendy (Kelly Reilly), has left him in Paris for another man in New York City and has taken their kids.
Desperate to be with his children, Xavier follows them to Manhattan and attempts to start a new life amid the hustle and bustle of the city, from marrying a Chinese woman to gain American citizenship to working on his new novel. Making things better and more complicated, old friends Martine (Audrey Tautou) and Isabelle (Cécile de France) add to the vibrant jumble. Can they all just get along?
Chinese Puzzle opens in select theaters Friday.
