Italian film Prima Dammi Un Bacio (literally, First Give Me A Kiss) became the top-grossing local film of the weekend, after it earned Euros 221,083 for UIP from 93 screens.
Produced by Rome's Sunflower Productions with backing from the Italian government's Fondo di Garanzia, Prima Dammi Un Bacio tells the story of a man and a woman who were born at the exact same time in 1927 within just a few feet of each other. Throughout their lives they share the same emotions and experiences and eventually fall in love, although they are separated during World War II.
New entry Dogville also performed well. Distributed by Medusa, the Lars Von Trier picture grossed Euros 341,608 from just 81 screens, scoring a high screen average of Euros 4,217.
Meanwhile, Caterina Va In Citta' continued its powerful march at the box office. The Paolo Virzi picture, distributed by 01 Distribution, has grossed Euros 2,523,890 three weeks after its release, dropping just 18% on the previous week's results.
