The Netherlands saw a dramatically different reception for two local releases last weekend. A-Film Distribution scored a hit with second placed Phileine Says Sorry which grossed $547,334 (Euros 463,592), including previews of $120,472 (Euros 102,040), over the four-day weekend.
The romantic comedy, based on the best-selling Dutch novel by Ronald Giphart, played at 77 screens for a strong $5,544 average over the weekend. It tells the story of a woman living in New York that only learns the meaning of true love and the ability to apologise after losing her boyfriend to her best friend.
Meanwhile, UIP's 56 screen release of Polleke, about an 11-year-old girl who is in love with the boy in the flat opposite, failed to draw audiences. The film mustered a paltry screen average of just $653 for 15th place.
Local smash The Skippers Of The Kameleon, currently the seventh biggest film of the year in the territory, just ahead of another local title Twin Sisters, continues to sail on. The family film has grossed $4.3m (Euros 3.7m) after 16 weeks in the chart.
