Sophie Marceau, French cinema's ambassador in China

The French star has won many hearts during recent trips to Beijing and Chengdu.

Sophie Marceau agreed to participate in the closing ceremony of the France-China Exchange Years program, and took advantage of her visit to promote "Anthony Zimmer" (released in China in September by Champs Lis/China Film Corporation and in Hong Kong in November by Intercontinental Film Distributors Ltd).

Ms. Marceau's busy program also included the presentation of "Nelly" by Laure Duthilleul and "Speak to Me of Love," a film that she directed herself.
The actress met with Chinese and Hong Kong television and press representatives, led a masterclass at the Central Film Academy, and presided over the opening of the first Chinese Cine-Club in Chengdu.
Hundreds of fans flocked to request Sophie Marceau's autograph and numerous Chinese daily newspapers devoted a front page spread to the actress.

China is becoming increasingly receptive to French films. "Anthony Zimmer" will be the fifth French title released in the country this year, following in the trail of "Influence Peddling," "A Very Long Engagement" (4.2 million yuan), "Double Zero" (9.7 million yuan) and "The Emperor's Journey" (also released as "March of the Penguins"), with 8 million yuan to date, and still showing in theaters.
