Critic Reviews for Un cuento chino (Chinese Take-Out)
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 Un cuento chino (Chinese Take-Out)
I loved this movie! It is funny and touching and Richardo Darin is brilliant as allways! I promise this is a feel good movie of the best sort. It plays in Buenos Aires as an added bonus and I sure loved listening to Spanish Argentia style!
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.
A simple, well written Argentinean film starring the one and only Ricardo Darin. The performances are natural, the cinematography crisp, and the story is fresh. The Chinese actor in particular is really good. It's no where near as epic as "El Secreto De Sus Ojos", but it's a fine film nonetheless.
