French Comedies Make The Running At UniFrance Rdv In Paris

19 January 2016 8:23 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– “Full Speed,” “The New Kid,” “French Cuisine” and “Roommates Wanted” were among the French comedies that dominated the UniFrance Rendez-Vous in Paris, the annual Gallic film confab attended by French sales agents and some 500 foreign distributors.

Since “Welcome To The Sticks,” “Heartbreaker,” “The Intouchables” and “Serial (Bad) Weddings” and “Babysitting,” the Rendez-Vous has emerged as a hotspot for mainstream comedies, particularly completed ones. Unlike previous editions, this year’s screenings didn’t have a clear winner — instead, a string a diverse laffers – rather than one single pic – were well-received.

“The New Kid” and “French Cuisine” both screened at the market and have already seen healthy theatrical launches in France. Considering how volatile and competitive the theatrical market has become, the box office score of movies in their home turf has become a key factor for distributors.
