The film had the strongest opening weekend for Polanski in France in years with 386,000 tickets sold across 545 screens. In its first week of release it topped the box-office charts and sold over 501,000 tickets and in its second week it fell to a respectable 4th place, bringing its two-week-total to 887,000 tickets sold. For comparison: His 2002 Oscar winner The Pianist (2002) sold 1.8 million tickets during its whole run, 2013's Venus in Fur (2013) topped out at 264,000 tickets and 2017's Based on a True Story (2017) only sold 110,000 tickets. Currently, the film has sold more then 1.5 million tickets in France, but it's still in release. See more »
This is a truely great film. The direction of this film is one of the reasons why as every scene is shot with such precision. Also the product design of this film was at the highest level which really helps the film to feel more real and authentic.
Overall this is a great film that I think people should see.
