The 20th anniversary of the fantastic international career of Amelie


UniFrance celebrates TF1 Studio's backing, Amelie, produced by UGC, and distributed by Césars ((Best Film, Best Director, Best Music, and Best Set Design). Internationally, it was released on 5 continents, in 50 countries, and reached nearly 23 million spectators for €133.5 million in box office revenues. Thanks to this performance, it dethroned The Intouchables (31.9 million tickets).

Germany, the film's protagonist's little quirks, Prokino, its local distributor, was enamored with the film at the script stage, and the company's CEO Bim Distribuzione, which distributed the film in revived the light-hearted French comedy, full of happiness and empathy," thus allowing new spectators to discover French productions with a fresh look. In addition, it paved the way for "mainstream" French comedies such as The Bélier Family, Serial (Bad) Weddings saga, thereby strengthening the links between foreign and French film industry professionals

Japan for example. French auteur cinema had always faced difficulties finding berths in the major chain's theaters. Amelie was one of the first titles of this kind to benefit from a wide print run, and to be screened simultaneously by big multiplexes and by mini-theaters (equivalent to our arthouse theaters). It was shown at New Select (formerly Albatros), it generated a new model for the release of non-mainstream productions in Japan, a model that continues to this day.

North America and the Toronto International Film Festival in 2001 and five Audrey Tautou generated $33.2 million in the Miramax), being almost 5.5 million spectators in 300 theaters, and £5 million in the United Kingdom (Australia since 1995 (In many countries, Jean-Pierre Jeunet's fourth feature was a blessing for local distributors. In Gutek Film had planned to release the film in about thirty theaters, a small run that would nevertheless lead the film to a final result of 753,000 spectators, which is to say an impressive 26,000 admissions per print, the highest abroad ahead of the Japanese (24,000)! In addition to the territories already mentioned, Amelie exceeded the symbolic threshold of 100,000 spectators in 24 others.

Twenty years ago, we would never have imagined celebrating this anniversary in the current context, with thousands of theaters shuttered around the world. According to Bim Distribuzione, Amelie's little pleasures touch us more today, because they are the ones we are eager to rediscover in our daily lives. This is why, with a new impetus from Bim Distribuzione and many other distributors around the world are working on a rerelease of Jean-Pierre Jeunet's film to celebrate the reopening of theaters!
