The French-language trailer for Christophe Barratier‘s Paris 36 (known in France as Faubourg 36) tells you it’s an “audience film” — broad, good natured, a little bit square and perhaps Amelie-like. Which is totally fine. Variety reported yesterday that Sony Pictures Classics has acquired distrib rights to the film in the U.S., Scandanavia and “Australasia,” which is located to the northeast of Freedonia, the country featured in the Marx Bros. film Duck Soup. Barratier’s film opens in France on 9.24.
