For all its goofiness and silliness, the story bops amiably and fluently along. It's a sort of boxset drama where the best stuff is in the last episode.

Viewers coming to this film without having seen the others would have no problem following the action; whether they'd care about it is another question.

An amiably daffy look at perpetual adolescence, French-style.

Once the story picks up, it's easy, breezy and enjoyable. It seduces you into thinking: Wouldn't it be fun to reconnect with Xavier in another five years or so?

Audience Reviews for Chinese Puzzle (Casse-tête chinois)

A romantic comedy masterpiece; genuinely heartfelt and funny, it's the third part in a series that began with Pot Luck and was followed by Russian Dolls but can be seen without prior knowledge. The cast are joyous, the photography is beautiful and the film feels wonderfully fresh and idiosyncratic. A joy.
