13 million admissions to "The Closet," "Brotherhood of the Wolf" and "Would I Lie To You? 2"

All three hit French films of early 2001 have just broken the 4 million spectators barrier. Never before witnessed in the month of February!

Whereas back in 2000, "Taxi 2" was the only French film to have topped 4 million admissions in France, these three films have already done just that during the week of February 14 to 20, 2001. Despite dropping back by 32%, "Would I Lie To You? 2" has confirmed its phenomenal performance, pulling in 4,747,940 spectators during its first two weeks on the screens. Released on January 31, "Brotherhood of the Wolf" registered 821,647 spectators in its third week (down 35%), to total 4,007,950 admissions. After one month in theaters, "The Closet" (released on January 24) is sitting pretty with 4,311,754 tickets sold, down only 23%. Adding to this the fine performance of "Under the Sand" (289,889 spectators in two weeks), French cinema can boast a cumulative market share for 2001 in the region of 46% (60% over the week), within the context of an overall rise in attendance figures: up 7% compared to January 2000.
