Xavier and Wendy who, after ten years of domestic bliss, realize the spark has gone from their relationship. She has met someone else and wants to move to New York and take the kids. Xavier, distraught at the thought of losing his children, decides to follow her across the Atlantic and moves in with a lesbian friend who’s already living in New York with her girlfriend. With no home, no job and no possibility of finding work, Xavier decides to up the ante by agreeing to father a child with Isabelle and inviting an ex-girlfriend Martine and her kids to New York for a vacation. Throw in an arranged marriage, a dodgy lawyer and Xavier’s involvement in Isabelle’s extra-marital activities and his description of life as “complicated” takes on a whole new meaning.

"What’s impressive is that despite the sometimes heavy subject matter—divorce, creative crisis and trying to find an affordable 2BR in New York City—Klapisch’s film is light and fizzy, set to a soundtrack of funk and salsa."
Kimber Myers - THE PLAYLIST

"The ground-level view of New York - high-energy, semi-farcical - avoids clichés while finding its own romantic pulse with Duris' charmer the compelling center of the buoyant and bittersweet storm."
Sheri Linden - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"This warm-blooded paean to globalization is just enough in touch with reality to keep your eyes from rolling. For Chinese Puzzle genuinely likes people. It overlooks the faults and misbehavior of its eccentric characters to express a lighthearted optimism that doesn’t feel forced or manipulative. It is in love with life."
Stephen Holden - NEW YORK TIMES

"Cédric Klapisch's film becomes an effervescent variation on the time-honored story of striking out for the American dream."
Nick Prigge - SLANT MAGAZINE
