Last Tuesday evening ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ became officially the most successful French movie in France of the year – dethroning Camping 2. According to today’s Le Figaro 4.7 million people have now seen it! This is only one month after its release and despite somewhat mixed reviews and a length of 2h40 minutes. The newspaper says that the movie has become a social phenomenon and have a psychoanalyst / philosopher try explain its success. There’s also a new interview with writer/director Guillaume Canet where he says he’s surprised by the huge success.

Interestingly, when it comes to all movie releases in France ‘Inception‘ (also with Marion Cotillard) is currently holding the record with over 4.9 million entries – but it looks like ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ will beat it soon. Its distributor Europa Corp expects that 5.5 million people will have seen it by the end of the year. The only other movie to maybe become the most successful movie in France of 2010 is Harry Potter which opens this week. But in any case it’s definitely the most successful French movie of 2010! Congratulations!

As regards international release dates there are no details yet but they’re previewing it in The Netherlands – thanks Nadine.

Here are scans of some extra stills featured in the soundtrack:

Last month, on October 10, 2010, the French Sunday TV Show Vivement Dimanche had Guillaume Canet as guest of honour. He got to invite people to join him and of course Marion Cotillard was one of those he invited. First she joined Yodelice as a regular band member to play the drums for the song ‘More than meets the eye’. Later she performed the duet ‘Five Thousand Nights’ together with Maxim Nucci before the two joined Guillaume on the couch to be interviewed. Marion Cotillard talked of her and her family’s love of music, how she chose the name of her character in the Yodelice universe after her maternal grandmother Simone. They also talked about her other grandmother and Marion’s character in Les petits mouchoirs. Later, these 3 were joined by almost the complete cast of Les petits mouchoirs.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find an actual recording of the first song as well as of the last part of the show. If you have one could you please let us use it for the site? Thank you.

There are many more high quality ‘Inception‘ stills in our gallery – thank you Roberta. As it’s already awards season various For Your Consideration ads can be found in trade papers. Recently, there was a gorgeous ad for ‘Inception‘ featuring a shot of Marion Cotillard in Variety. Even if her name isn’t on it it’s bound to catch people’s eye and remind them of her haunting presence throughout the movie – via Awards Daily.

I’m getting really impatient to see the new Lady Dior short movie! In the meantime watch Hawksley Workman’s 2004 music video No Reason To Cry Out Your Eyes with Marion or listen to the 2008 Marion & Hawksley collaboration The Strong Ones.

Whether it’s sleek chic or cyberfantasy, silver-screen Hollywood glamour or Holly Woodlawn camp, whether it’s East End edge or East Egg flapper dazzle, from head (artful marcel waves, tumbled-out-of-bed tousle, or candy-floss high-rise) to toe (ballet slippers with dirndls or platforms with ball gowns), the ten individualists whom Vogue celebrates as the Best Dressed of 2010 are gamely rewriting the rules. Or rather, showing us all that there are no rules beyond staying true to oneself.
