Movie Info

In this comedy, layers and layers of personal lies provide the glue that holds a trendy, shallow group of Parisians together. The story centers on Ada, a deeply indebted, but promising young fashion designer who has just purchased an apartment with her lover and holds a housewarming party to celebrate. The bulk of the story unfolds episodically as assorted neurotic characters come to call and begin to intermingle.more

Audience Reviews for Portraits Chinois

This started out a bit slowly, and the subtitles were sometimes hard to read, but ended up being a decent story.
