"Amelie from Montmartre," always taking things a step further
Thanks to the success of Jean-Pierre Jeunet's film, now heading for the 5 million spectators mark, France's domestic market share has stood firm at 50% for several weeks.
In its fifth week on the screens, "Amelie from Montmartre" broke the 4 million admissions barrier, and is now heading for the 5 million mark, which it is likely to cross in the coming week. In Paris, the film has already sold more than 1 million tickets. Owing to its impressively steady performance in theaters, "Amelie" is ranked in fifth place at the box office among films released in the past year, behind "Would I Lie to You? 2", "The Closet" and "Brotherhood of the Wolf", the other French showstoppers of the year. French films have already raked in over 40 million admissions, as against 33 million admissions registered to American productions.
