Stephen Frears' critically acclaimed Dirty Pretty Things performed particularly well in the Belgian capital of Brussels over its five-day launch. The drama, which stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Audrey Tautou and Sergi Lopez, placed sixth in the capital city with a $15,914 (Euro 14,434).

In the country as a whole Dirty Pretty Things has claimed $45,334 including previews from just nine screens for a strong $5,037 average. The film tells the story of two illegal immigrants who find and help each other while caught up in the seedy underworld of London's black market organ trade.

The top six films remained unchanged from last weekend.
