Critic Reviews for Chinese Puzzle (Casse-tête chinois)

All Critics (64) | Top Critics (23)

  • 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.

  • Entire sub-plots and characters could have been sacrificed and still this good-natured, perma-cranked-up-to-11 rom-com would have been too noisy for some.

  • 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?

  • The film flits from one subplot to another and not in that delightfully freewheeling European kind of way.

Audience Reviews for Chinese Puzzle (Casse-tête chinois)

  • Oct 20, 2013
    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.
