All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (2)

  • It's fun-enough to watch, but it's nothing more than that, even though it seems to want to be.

  • This is a superb human comedy.

    August 30, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A film about repression and constraint that keeps its emotional range carefully under control.

    August 30, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Truth is certainly stranger than fiction, it seems.

    August 30, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • 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.

    June 1, 2012 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • This sweet little tragicomedy about life's absurdities plays out as a buddy movie in which two damaged men from opposite sides of the world find unexpected common ground.

Audience Reviews for Chinese Take-Out (Un cuento chino)

    Original title: 'Un Cuento Chino'.

    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.

    Já estou acostumado à sempre assistir bons filmes argentinos, com histórias surpreendentes. Esse não só mantém o nível como é por sí só a história de uma história incrível. Darín encanta novamente por ser totalmente novo neste papel e a narração é feita de forma a revelar uma surpresa a cada novo quadro. Além de que, o fato de o filme ser baseado em uma história real, cái como uma luva aqui, pois sem forçar acabamos nos vendo exatamente no mesmo lugar de Roberto.
