1 million guests
5 weeks after, Belle Maman (Stepmom), the first comedy for Deneuve since L'Africain, is a hit. Place Vendome (12 nominations at the Cesar / 0 wins) was just below the symbolic level of 1 million french spectators.
Belle Maman is now over the million. In this movie Deneuve makes laugh. She sings (rap and pop), her humour is raw, and there's is an happy ending. Lesbians and Gays would be appreciate.
Belle Maman is the 5th french movie of the year to overpass the million. In 98, only 4 french movies were over the mark. It's the 24th Deneuve's movie to hit the mark in 35 years.
