Taree film society screens Chinese Puzzle


TAREE Film Society will screen Chinese Puzzle (M) at 6.45pm on Monday, June 16 at Fay's Twin Cinema.

Director and writer Cedric Klapisch reassembles many of his greatest character actors from The Spanish Apartment and Russian Dolls for the next instalment of comedy on love and friendship, set this time in the Big Apple.

Xavier (Romain Duris), a 40-year-old father of two finds life too complicated. When the mother of his two children, Wendy (Kelly Reilly) moves to New York, he can't bear them growing up far away from him and follows them to the Big Apple. But of course, it's all very complicated for him. His lesbian best friend Isabelle (C cile de France) asks him to donate sperm so she and her partner Ju (Sandrine Holt) can have a child, and his divorced ex-girlfriend Martine (Audrey Tautou), turns up with her two children. All the while Xavier is trying to work around the complicated US immigration system to get a green card so he can work. Xavier and his world really do seem like a Chinese Puzzle.

Admission is $16 including some refreshments. For tickets or further information please find the film society at the table in the foyer, phone 6552 3476 or visit www.tareefilmsociety.org.au.
