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:
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.

To promote the release of ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ in France Guillaume Canet and Marion Cotillard will appear during Michel Drucker’s talk show Vivement Dimance on October 10, 2010. Thanks Louise & Gina for the heads up!
There will be an advance screening of ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ at the Cinema Gaumont Pathé in Orléans on September 15. Guillaume Canet will be there as well as some of the cast. Seeing as this is Marion’s hometown, I’m guessing she’ll be there.
The 25th edition of FIFF (Festival International du Film Francophone de Namur, Belgium) is currently in negotiations to feature ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ in their lineup when the festival takes place October 1-8, 2010. Additionally, they are waiting for confirmation of Guillaume Canet’s attendance and will try to get the rest of the cast, speak Marion Cotillard. Stay tuned!

I also added more pictures to the ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ (Little White Lies) gallery. I will be attending the Mulhouse advance screening tomorrow evening and post my thoughts as well as some film-related scans soon afterwards.
The Toronto International Film Festival posted their official guest list today and as expected Marion Cotillard as well as director Guillaume Canet are to be at the festival for the world premiere of ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ (Little White Lies) which is to take place on Saturday, September 11, 2010, 1.30 pm at the Royal Thomson Hall. For additional screenings as well as an extended film description visit the TIFF Little White Lies page.
Via Gossip Communications and credit to Jean-Claude Lother, Les Productions Du Tresor, EuropaCorp, Caneo Films and M6 Films come many pretty stills and behind the scenes pictures. Guillaume Canet posted a 3rd Making Of video recently which offers only a few glimpses of Marion.
Some stills and on set pictures from ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs‘ (Little White Lies) have surfaced online. Also, the movie’s runtime is 2 hours 25 minutes. This may seem long but industry sources are saying they are happy with the result and have no troubles with the length so that’s good news!
More ‘Inception‘ promotion material is appearing online. In the new ‘Meet the Characters’ featurette Marion Cotillard as Mal is featured with a line for the first time. I’ve added high quality screencaps of that moment. And those new stills just look gorgeous!

This is just a small update to let you know that Marion Cotillard (and Leonardo DiCaprio) are on the cover of the July issue of Studio Ciné Live. I will add scans as soon as I have the magazine. Also added another ‘Inception‘ still to the gallery.
Ahead of the ‘Inception‘ Premiere in Los Angeles on July 13, the movie will have its world premiere in London on July 8. If you’re in the UK you can win tickets on Facebook. According to Associated Press the press junket will be held this week. Thanks Nadine for all the heads up.
Already now the first production still with Marion Cotillard has popped up online and the official Inception Website has been updated with Wallpapers and Production Notes with interesting details about the international filming and technical aspects of creating a movie about dreams.
“His mind is so rich,” Marion Cotillard says, “and that’s one reason Chris is such an extraordinary director and writer. On a movie as imaginative as this, you need a director you can trust—someone to take your hand and share his vision—and I trusted him 100 percent. He really inspired me and gave me the keys I needed.”
MAL – THE SHADE
Mal, played by Marion Cotillard, is the love of Cobb’s life. “Mal is a tricky one to describe because she is a mix of so many things,” the actress says cryptically. “But maybe it’s the kind of thing you don’t describe because different people can have different interpretations.”
“Mal is the essence of the femme fatale,” states Nolan. “Marion brought an exceptionally haunting quality to her performance. What she was able to do with just her eyes and her emotional openness is quite beautiful. And she and Leo together portray an incredibly moving couple. Underneath all of the action, I think ‘Inception’ is very much founded on a love story, and these two actors found the truth of that in a most remarkable way.”
“Leo is such a gifted actor. I have always been a great fan of his work, so it was amazing to work with him,” Cotillard says. “His commitment is total and his intensity is unlimited. You can see it in his eyes. When you share a scene with him, you can trust everything he does because he’s so authentic.”
DiCaprio has equal praise for his co-star. “It was wonderful to act alongside Marion. She can be strong and vulnerable and hopeful and heartbreaking all in the same moment, which was perfect for all the contradictions of her character.”
Emma Thomas: “I especially loved what Jeffrey did with Mal’s costumes, like the gorgeous, flowing gown we first see her in. She is the femme fatale and her wardrobe reflects that.”
