Germany honors Serial (Bad) Weddings with a Golden Screen Award

The French comedy has picked up the German exhibitors' award in Berlin, which was accepted by members of the film's crew who were in town for the Berlin French Film Week.

The comedy by Philippe de Chauveron is still drawing crowds in foreign theaters. Bolstered by its exceptionally enthusiastic welcome by German audiences (3.6 millions admissions in this market to date), Serial (Bad) Weddings has now been honored with the Golden Screen Award presented by German movie professionals. This award (the "Goldene Leinwand") celebrates films that have registered more than 3 million admissions in movie theaters.

Philippe de Chauveron and the actors Christian Clavier and Noom Diawara were in Berlin on December 5 to accept the award, along with UniFrance Films executive director Isabelle Giordano. Renamed in Germany as Mr Claude und seine Töchter by its distributor Neue Visionen Filmverleih, Serial (Bad) Weddings has also just been released on DVD, and has jumped to the top of the national charts for video sales.
