French films at the international box office: February 2018

Monsieur Pas De Merde is very much anticipating the US release of Two Is Family, the new French film starring Clémence Poésy and Omar Sy.
Also, the February release of  Cest La Vie, directed by Eric Toledano, Olivier Nakache, is also on my short list to see this Spring! Read more in this piece fro UNIFRANCE

In February, a comedy dominated the European markets and an adventure film appealed to Italian spectators, while a second comedy got off to a strong start in Belgium.

During the first two months of 2017, French productions generated 14.7 million in admissions abroad, in the same period in 2018, they totaled only 6.75 million.

This can be explained by the huge success of Leap (7.96 million and 14 million in total) and of Two is a Family (1.94 million and 5.12 million in total), which by themselves alone sustained the greatest proportion of the 2017 results, a score that the performances of new titles cannot manage to equal, despite the fine careers of Call Me by Your Name (3.14 million) and C’est la vie! (1.55 million) [. . . ]
