Starring Catherine Deneuve and Chiara Mastroianni, this
sly and exquisitely romantic musical drama from Christophe Honore spans over three decades as it follows a mother and daughter's misadventures in love. In the '60s, Madeleine leaves Paris to re-join her Czech husband Jar mil in Prague, but his infidelities and the arrival of Russian tanks in the city lead her back to France.
Thirty years later we follow the romance of Madeleine's daughter, Vera, who falls in love with a musician in London who is incapable of devoting himself to her. Meanwhile in Paris, a re-married Madeleine has rekindled her love affair with Jaromil. Louis Garrel and Paul Schneider also star in this light-hearted but ultimately moving exploration of the
changing nature of relationships, with music by Alex Beaupain.

Cosmopolis led the way on the per theater chart with an excellent opening of $70,000 in three theaters for an average of $23,446. Given its reviews, I'm not sure it will do well as it expands. Robot and Frank was also strong with an average of $17,770 in two theaters, while Compliance was right behind with $16,427 in one theater. Ek Tha Tiger didn't quite reach the $10,000 club over the weekend with an average of $9,655, but it was a Wednesday release, so had it opened on Friday, it likely would have easily made the cut.

Late August is a poor time of year for wide releases, but it is also usually not a good time of year for limited releases. It is too late to take advantage of the summer holidays, but it is also too early for Awards Season. However, there are nine films on this week's list, several of which are earning overwhelmingly positive reviews. Chicken and Plums, Compliance, Robot and Frank, and Side by Side are all earning amazing reviews. There are also several others that are earning good, but not great reviews. There might be too many good films coming out this week and the competition could cause one or two films that truly deserve to earn some measure of mainstream success from reaching their potential.
