Already megawatt stars in France, Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris have seen their star shine across international borders too. And together they make a pretty attractive package. While they most recently teamed for Michel Gondry‘s “Mood Indigo,” the duo are perhaps best known for their ensemble dramedies with director Cédric Klapisch, “Pot Luck” and “Russian Dolls.” And they’ve once again teamed with the filmmaker for another tale in the saga started in those movies.
“Chinese Puzzle” brings together a cast that also includes Kelly Reilly, Cecile De France, Sandrine Holt and more, for the story of a 40-year-old father of two, who splits from his wife who moves with the kids to New York City. He follows along to be closer to his children, but in order to stay in the country, he becomes the father of a child to two lesbians, marries a Chinese woman and also winds up with Tautou on his arm. Not bad. Yes, it’s a trifle but Klapisch, Duris and Tautou have this arena down cold.
