Chinese Puzzle
Cédric Klapisch’s “L’Auberge Espagnole” and “Russian Dolls” weren’t really begging for a third and final entry in the global adventures of Xavier (Romain Duris), but it doesn’t make “Chinese Puzzle” any less enjoyable. What’s impressive is that despite the sometimes heavy subject matter—divorce, creative crisis and trying to find an affordable 2BR in New York City—Klapisch’s film is light and fizzy, set to a soundtrack of funk and salsa. We’ll claim that we laughed throughout the film, but we were probably heard full-on giggling with delight.

Chinese Puzzle
Already megawatt stars in France, Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris have seen their star shine across international borders too. And together they make a pretty attractive package. While they most recently teamed for Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo," the duo are perhaps best known for their ensemble dramedies with director Cédric Klapisch, "Pot Luck" and "Russian Dolls." And they've once again teamed with the filmmaker for another tale in the saga started in those movies.

While the initial, "Inception"-y trailer for "Möbius" was pretty exciting, it was a disappointment to find out that the resulting thriller ultimately wasn't so hot. Our review out of the Tribeca Flim Festival last year called the picture "story-heavy" and "nakedly superficial," which is a bummer considering the international ensemble pulled together for this one. But if you want to see for yourself, the movie is coming to home video and a new trailer is here to set it all up for you.

Who can you trust? It’s the question posed by the international spies at the heart of “Mobius,” all of whom spend their time so deep undercover that they might as well be double-crossing themselves. Of course, as this film proudly, defiantly jumps deep into the pool of international finance trading (which may actually be a thing, or might just be three buzzwords slammed together given the rapid-fire patter of this film), the question audiences will likely be asking is, who can we avoid trusting so we aren’t a part of this whole mess?

“Mobius” is a film that has been on our radar for a while now, first intriguing us last November with its "Inception"-esque teaser. Then it was announced yesterday that “Mobius” would be included in the lineup at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival and, right on cue, we have a whole slew of new pics as well as a couple of clips from the film to get us even more excited. Certainly, this makes “Mobius” a must-see at next month’s festival.

Last fall, our attention was grabbed in a big way by the teaser trailer for "Mobius." Coming somewhat out of nowhere, it certainly riffed on BRAAAHM-esque, "Inception"-style marketing, but was still tantalizingly mysterious, and provided more than enough stirring imagery to intrigue us. Well, with the movie set to open overseas shortly, a longer, more traditional trailer has dropped that's no less compelling.

As "The Artist" star Jean Dujardin prepares to make strides into Hollywood with roles in Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street" and George Clooney's "The Momuments Men," he's got a nifty little thriller on the way that looks very, very promising. Dare we even say "Inception"-esque?

As Harvey Weinstein crawls on hands and knees up the Croisette, searching desperately for the next film to equal the success of last year’s golden child, “The Artist,” it can be hard to recall just how unique and singular the film seemed when first shown at Cannes, before its subsequent release and obnoxious awards season buzz. The plain fact is, director Michel Hazanavicius & Co. made a tremendous film, and today news has sprung up that the cast and crew will continue to pursue interesting projects, ones that find them in a distinctly different environment than before.

What can be said about the Dardenne brothers that five Cannes awards don't already say much more definitively? Even a mediocre splotch in their oeuvre is twelve notches above most other contemporary films that get paraded around on the blogosphere.

A lot of foreign actors take their Hollywood success and run straight to the set of a blockbuster studio pic. It’s nice to see that Cannes/Weinstein Company darling Jean Dujardin - the star of the crowdpleasing, awards season player “The Artist” - isn’t waiting around to see if Sony needs an additional villain for the “Green Hornet” sequel, but has instead signed onto French auteur Eric Rochant’s thriller-romance “Mobius.” Joining him will be
