Chinese Take-Away

The language of friendship is not words but meaning.” - Henry David Thoreau 

Our feature film for March, Chinese Take-Away, is a gripping story about a unique connection between two men from completely different worlds — and completely different languages. Roberto is the disgruntled and methodic owner of a Buenos Aires hardware store; Jun is a mysterious Chinese man looking for his uncle, and appears in Roberto’s life in the most unlikely of ways. Unable to communicate, a tattoo on Jun’s arm reveals a clue to his past. What transpires is the search to uncover the mysteries behind Jun’s presence in Argentina. 

An Argentinean box office hit and rated four stars by Roger Ebert, Chinese Take-Away is a comedic study of language, misunderstanding, communication and happenstance. Beautifully composed and rich in nuanced comic touches, this poignant film won the Audience Award at the 2011 Rome Film Fest.
