Cédric Klapisch, shown below, is back in town with the third in the trilogy that began with L'Auberge Espagnole, continued with Russian Dolls, and now finds his characters -- including those played by Romain Duris (at right, above and below) and Audrey Tautou (above, left, and bottom, right) -- at the 40-years-old mark in his newest chapter, CHINESE PUZZLE (Casse-tête chinois).
French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York’s premiere French cultural center, has scheduled a screening of both Chinese Puzzle and L'Auberge Espagnole this coming Tuesday, April 22, and is also thrilled to welcome director Klapisch and actors Duris and Pablo Mugnier-Jacob (above, center) for a special CinéSalon Sneak Preview of the new film (as well as one of the old ones). Chinese Puzzle, running 117 minutes, screens Tuesday, April 22 at 7:30pm in FIAF’s Florence Gould Hall, with L'Auberge Espagnole, 122 minutes, screening earlier at 4pm in the same venue.
