This came in a little while ago from MK2, the French distributor. Thought I'd share it with you.
Dig that poster.
THE FRENCH PUBLIC IS HIGH ON THE DOORS
When You’re Strange, the Doors documentary, directed by Tom DiCillo, reached 55 099 admissions in France in one week, on 55 prints.
It is the best opening of a musical documentary in France in a long time. French film goers overwhelmingly voted in favour of the band with a rating outside cinemas of 93% (Source Ecran Total / Observatoire de la Satisfaction).
Along with the newsstand Special Edition of the Magazine ‘Trois Couleurs’ dedicated to the group and a soundtrack released by Rhino France, Tom DiCillo’s film reinforces the myth and reveals the true cult of the Doors, especially with the young public.
In its second week, French distributor MK2 Diffusion, has added 37 prints, which adds up to a total of 92 copies in France.
Thanks to everyone who has supported the film!!!
