Xavier Rousseau is heartbroken when his British wife Wendy leaves him for a man she met in New York and takes their two children with her. Determined to maintain contact with his kids, he flies over to America from France and attempts to become an American citizen in any way he can; from donating his sperm to a lesbian couple to marrying a Chinese woman. He meets Wendy's new boyfriend, who happens to be annoyingly nice and - to Wendy's irritation - highly sympathetic to Xavier's dilemma in moving to a foreign country, and he even has chance to reconnect with an old lover, Martine, who has come to visit him and wants to make a fresh start. As he tries to get his life back on track, things just keep getting harder and harder.
This uplifting French-American comedy drama is the third instalment of director and writer Cédric Klapisch's ('My Piece of the Pie ', 'Pot Luck', 'Family Resemblances ') Spanish Apartment trilogy following 2002's 'L'Auberge Espagnole' and 2005's 'Russian Dolls'. 'Chinese Puzzle' (also called 'Casse-tête chinois') won a 2nd place Audience Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival and it is scheduled for release in the UK on June 13th 2014.
