About the Film:
Directed by Cédric Klapisch. 2014. France. 117 mins. French and English with English subtitles
Xavier (the roguishly-charming Romain Duris, who is also in Mood Indigo) returns to the screen 15 years after Cédric Klapisch’s smash-hit The Spanish Apartment and ten years since its sequel Russian Dolls. Xavier’s is now 40 and his life is still a mess. His ex-wife, Wendy (Kelly Reilly) has left him in Paris and taken their kids to New York. Always up for an adventure, Xavier follows them to the city and begins to piece together a life for himself amidst the cheerful chaos of downtown Manhattan. An imminent deadline for his new novel, the realities of immigration, and old friends Martine (Audrey Tautou) and Isabelle (Cécile de France) add to the vibrant jumble in this delightful conclusion to Cédric Klapisch’s trilogy.
