'Chinese Puzzle' (Casse-tête chinois) (2014) directed by Cédric Klapisch

 Capturing human interaction on film isn't as easy as it sounds.  Too often screenwriters and directors retreat into cliched dialogue and stock characters to the point where the people running around on screen feel as artificial as any rampaging CG monster.  But Chinese Puzzle serves up a blizzard of tightly observed interactions, shifting relationships and moments of honest emotion that all ring true. This is a great piece of cinema, one that really understands the complexities - the soaring joys and the crushing miseries - of modern love.


Chinese Puzzle is on general release from June 13th
