Netflix is offering a nice Happy New Year 2023 gift to its subscribers by including a French film that has been hugely successful in France in its catalog. In 2010, 5.5 million viewers went to theaters in France to see the new film by Guillaume Canet. This seems almost derisory compared to the current figures ofAvatar 2 which exceeded 7 million in less than three weeks in France, but it was still the biggest success of 2010 for a French film and the second all films combined behind timeHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 1time part.
Guillaume Canet had assembled a five-star cast for his third feature film named The little handkerchiefs : Jean Dujardin, Marion Cotillard, Gilles Lellouche, Francois Cluzet, Benoit MagimelLaurent Laffite, Valerie Bonneton, Pascale Arbillot… The little handkerchiefs it’s the story of a group of Parisian friends who go on vacation to the southwest in a house rented by Max, played by François Cluzet. They all come together while one of them, Ludovic (Jean Dujardin), is between life and death following a motorcycle accident. This situation will create tensions within the group and everyone will gradually tell each other their four truths.
For more than 2h30, Guillaume Canet will lead his team to success. So much so that there will be a sequel in 2019, We’ll end up together which will make a little more than 3 million admissions to the cinema. Much less so than The little handkerchiefswhich was clearly better and is now possible to review on netflix.
