Written and directed by Sebastian Borensztein, Chinese Take-away is essentially a character study of Roberto, who is emotionally repressed and so obsessed with order and regimentation that he’ll count the number of screws in a box and complain to the manufacturer if there’s one or two missing. An unexplained foreigner staying in his house is the last thing he wants, but maybe it’s what he needs to bring him out of his shell and help him come to terms with some of the demons of his past. This sweet little tragicomedy about life’s absurdities plays out as a buddy movie in which two damaged men from opposite sides of the world find unexpected common ground.
