Spanish Apartment (2001) Russian Dolls (2005). 10 years have passed since the last iteration of the series captured audiences hearts, yet still Xavier’s story remains popular. Now finally the last chapter of the French romantic comedy series has been published. Leaving the day to day love of his youth, we follow Xavier, a successful writer with two kids at the age of 40. Just when he thinks he has found peace and happiness in his life, his wife decides to file for divorce. Xavier now decides to move to New York, in pursuit of his wife and children. But once again, Xavier finds himself embroiled in new various troubles, in a new city, all for the pursuit of love. Watch as humor and wit make you laugh in beautiful New York, but also as you feel for Xavier in a love story anyone could relate to.


The movie’s strong points are definitely its witty undertone and overall comedic story. There were many times where i found myself laughing uncontrollably in the middle of the theater. Even though it was a French film, it was shot in New York. I think that this was because of the fact that a more international, typical location can give more appeal to a wider base audience. Troubles coming from the inability to think about other people are a core theme, but the hero does not become someone tragic, rather, he stays interesting and funny. He is a hero that you cant help but love. In addition, in spite of the fact that this movie comes as part of a series, the story remains interesting and funny, even without watching the first two movies. The plot is witty and quick, this tragic comedy never gives off a dull moment. After watching this movie, I couldn’t help but think, “Life is interesting precisely because do not know what will happen!” The movie is really about positivity. I encourage everyone to see this film.
