Titane and the last French Palmes d'or at the international box-office

The coveted top award from the Cannes International Film Festival unquestionably gives a boost to the distribution of the winning film. Taking a look back at the last winning French films, and their international career.

Titane, by Julia Ducournau, crowned in 2021, is the majority French-language fiction production most seen on the big screen abroad in 2021. It brought together 522,000 spectators outside France (€3.82 million in receipts), thus knowing a richer career in admissions than its predecessor, Dheepan, by Jacques Audiard, winner of the Palme d'or in 2015 (405,000 admissions and €2.87 million).

Despite the effects of the pandemic, Titane was released in more than 40 markets, like the 5 other Palmes d'or (majority production) that France has won since 2000. The 4 films that won the prize before Dheepan all brought together millions of moviegoers outside our borders: 1.80 million by Abdellatif Kechiche's Blue is the Warmest Color (2013, €13.1 million soundtrack), 2.33 million by Laurent Cantet's The Class (2008, €13.2 million) , 3.78 million by Love (2012, €24.8 million) and 17.9 million by Roman Polanski's The Pianist (2002, €99.2 million).
