has so far drawn a total of 4.33m viewers (i.e. €26.6m in takings) and has seen a drop of only 10% in its fourth week. Still in second place in the weekly rankings with over 720,000 admissions, the film looks set to be the French box office’s big hit of 2010.

Another domestic title has got off to a flying start: François Ozon’s Potiche [+see also:

, which has attracted 875,000 viewers in its first week (Mars Distribution on 440 screens) and has enabled its director to find favour again with mainstream audiences.
