Quentin Dupieux’s film with Jean Dujardin and Adèle Haenel leads Nureyev and Beaux-Parents (Source: Film Français).
It seems incredible that a film by Quentin Dupieux occupies the first place of the box office, given the absurd and confidential character of its cinema. Mr. Oizo, however, dominated the podium with Le Suede , gathering 1171 spectators for 24 copies. An average of 49 spectators per copy which marks one of the best starts for the director after Au Poste! (1666 entries, 266,562 in total).
He is closely followed by the third film of Ralph Fiennes on the star dancer Noureev . The biopic on the one nicknamed The White Crow (white crow) totaled 1047 entries for 19 copies. It’s better than Beaux-Parents for the same number of rooms. The comedy with the trio of the three B’s (Bourdon / Balasko / Bénabar) attracted only 724 curious at the first Parisian sessions.
The second best performance of the week is in Nevada by director Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre. A virile prison movie with Matthias Schoenaerts, detained in reintegration thanks to the training of wild horses. With 705 admissions for 13 small copies, the drama begins better than the sequel to the adventures of Chucky, Child’s Play, totaling 440 spectators for 11 copies.
