Roberto collects bizarre worldwide news in an album as a hobby and his acquaintance Mari has an unrequited love for him, but Roberto is always evasive. One day, Roberto sees a Chinese named Jun being expelled from a taxi while he is watching the landing of airplanes in the airport and he helps the man to stand up. Jun does not speak Spanish and shows a tattoo with an address on his arm. Roberto

Darin and Huang are an acting dream team. The film has a heartwarming core shot through with black humor, as director Sebastian Borensztein re-creates the zany calamities recorded in Roberto's scrapbooks.

It is hardly possible to suggest how involving this story becomes. One can see how it could have been a comedy, but this is no comedy.

Audience Reviews for A Chinese Tale

A delightful film that is not only hilarious but also surprisingly touching, and it never succumbs to cheap melodrama, remaining believable all the time - even with such an odd premise. Also, Ricardo Darín is excellent as always, providing the story with some very funny moments.
