Casse-tête chinois or Chinese Puzzle (or Nueva vida en Nueva York here in Spain), is a 2013 French film directed by Cédric Klapisch, and is a sequel to L’Auberge Espagnole (2002) and Les Poupées Russes (2005), with Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Kelly Reilly and Cécile De France.
When I decided to go and watch this movie today, I had no idea that it was the continuation of the previous two (which I loved), I just knew that the main actor was the same and so was the director. I was pleasantly surprised when I recognized them all…
Just like the two previous ones, this is an amazing movie, that deals with the themes of divorce, custody, trying to get a green card or find an affordable apartment, and of course… friendship. And just like the others, they each stand alone, but they all go great together. I’m planning to watch the previous ones sometime this weekend, because it has been too long.
Hands down, one of my favorite things about this movie is Xavier and Wendy’s fights… 😉 And OMG, could their son be any more adorable?!
If you have watched the previous movies, you should definitely check this one out. If you haven’t, what are you waiting for?!
