As of Wednesday, ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ is being shown in cinemas across France. On the day of the premiere alone, 166,477 people went to see it – which apparently makes this the 2nd best French opening of the year behind Camping 2 and the 12th best start overall. Congratulations! Visit the OFFICIAL movie website!
To promote the movie, Marion Cotillard attended more advance screenings: on Tuesday evening in Montpellier (South of France) from where she took a plane back to Paris – Guillaume & Co. attended screenings in 5 different cinemas in Paris throughout Wednesday – the day of the theatrical release. View a picture of Marion and Guillaume taking a stroll near UGC Bercy in the morning.
Then, pre-recorded interviews with Marion Cotillard were shown on TV while Guillaume Canet was a guest in the studio: Evening news JT20h on France 2, October 17 and Cooking Show C A Vous on France 5, October 19. This show went to the Paris premiere and asked the cast members to divulge something about Guillaume we didn’t know yet. Marion was asked what he’d like to have on the show – she suggested Crumble, which was then the dessert on the show. And everyone was given a handkerchief (“mouchoir”) with their name.
A proper video about the gala premiere in Paris can be found on Gala.fr and Marion, Guillaume & François did stay for the La boîte à questions on Monday. The segment – with a reference to Marion’s Forehead Tittaes – aired on Wednesday on Canal+.
