I had to find a way to translate onto film
the emotions that I felt as a child – and
even much later in life – on reading the
comic books, whilst respecting the original
world created by André Franquin.
A cast of crazy people, […]
the most fantastic special effects
ever seen in France, this Marsupilami
is a truly unique specimen. You’ll
be glad you braved the queues!
Alain Chabat
Matthieu Carratier – Première
Congratulations, Chabat! An absolute
torrent of gags and a real sense of wonder,
the best French comedy for a long time.

The retorts snap like
firecrackers across a
post-yuppie dinner table
metamorphosed into
a battlefield. A marvelous
feast for the spectator!
Caroline Vié – 20 minutes
A splendid exhilarating comedy
regardless of whether you’re
already familiar with the play.
Fabien Gaffez – Positif
What’s so nice about
working with actors
on a daily basis is that it
gives you the chance to
discover other sides of
them, to bring out their
potential in other ways,
jettison the usual typecasting and bring
out unsuspected facets.
Basic truths
sometimes better left
unsaid… but for
a knowing moviegoer,
often good for a laugh!
Fabien Menguy – A nous Paris
Alexandre de La Patellière
This is a very funny, typically
French comedy that speaks
volumes about our shortcomings.

Whether she was made up
as the young or the ageing
Margaret, she was so utterly into
the character that, every time you
passed her on the set, it took your
breath away.
This film was a fantastic
opportunity. More often than
not, a film is set in a particular
period, but this one takes
us through a whole lifetime.
An enthralling challenge.

Released

1,442,094 admissions
France
With the voices of Simon Abkarian, Thierry Frémont,
François-Xavier Demaison, Ronit Elkabetz, Déborah François,
Mohamed Fellag, Vernon Dobtcheff, Roger Dumas
and Max Renaudin
Rémi is a very subtle
and delicate director.
He never asked us to go
beyond the spirit of the
interpretation. The recording
sessions were filmed, and
that led to an aptness of
intonation, something very
natural. Therein resides the
force of the film. It’s the
subject matter that takes
precedence. We were telling
an animated story without
having the impression
of being in a cartoon.
Thierry Frémont
An intelligent tale,
very well acted.
For everyone from
8 to 88.
Sophie Benamon –
Studio Ciné Live
This giraffe is going to win
your hearts.
Pierre Vavasseur – Le Parisien
A success both visually

A lovely animated
tale, all done by
hand. It combines
formal beauty
and an intelligent
storyline […].

A Plan for Restoration
and Digital Remastering
Pathé is launching a long-term plan
for the remastering and restoration
of films in its library.
Pathé is committed to restoring more than
100 feature films to the highest possible
quality standards. The operations will be
carried out, in particular, by the laboratories
of the Eclair Group in Paris and Immagine
Ritrovata in Bologna. Several restored films
were presented to the public in 2012,
including Les Misérables (1934) by
Raymond Bernard, and a number of films
by Maurice Tourneur, which have been
issued as a boxed DVD set: Accusée,
levez-vous ! (Accused, Stand Up!) (1930),
Au nom de la loi (In the Name of the Law)
(1932), Les Gaîtés de l’escadron (Fun in
Barracks) (1932), Obsession (1933)
and Justin de Marseille (1934).
Tess, directed by Roman Polanski and starring
Nastassja Kinski, was first released on the cinema
circuit in 1979 and was a big award winner at that
time – in particular, 3 Oscars, 3 Césars, including
Best Film, and the Golden Globe for Best Foreign
Film. The film has already been restored and
remastered by Pathé who called on Eclair Group
to restore the images and L.E. Diapason for the
sound. The restored version was presented at the
Cannes Festival in 2012, in the Cannes Classics
category, and subsequently screened at the Il
Cinema Ritrovato festival in Bologna, the Toronto
International Film Festival and at the Festival
Lumière in Lyon. The general public has been able
to rediscover the film in movie theaters as well
as on DVD and Blu-Ray in December 2012.
Tess was also screened
as the opening film at
the first edition of the
International Festival
of Restored Films
“Toute la mémoire
du monde”, organized
by the Cinémathèque
française.
2012:
A Great Year for
Les Enfants
du paradis
(Children
of Paradise)
The general public rediscovered, or
discovered, a masterpiece of French
cinema, Marcel Carné’s Les Enfants du
paradis (Children of Paradise), based on
a script and dialogues by Jacques
Prévert, in a newly remastered version in
4K. It has thus been possible to give the
film wide exposure to the general public
in a high quality version. It has been
released in France, in movie theaters,
on DVD and (for the first time) Blu-Ray,
and broadcast in prime time on the Arte
television network. It was the subject
of an extensive exhibition at the
Cinémathèque française organized
in collaboration with the Fondation
Jérôme Seydoux-Pathé. Outside France,
the film has been released on the
cinema circuit in the United States and
in the United Kingdom. In the United
States, the film was critically acclaimed
in the press and was given a preview at
New York’s Lincoln Center on March 7,
2012 as part of the Rendez-Vous with
French Cinema event. In the United
Kingdom, the film was re-released by
the British Film Institute (BFI) and
presented at the BFI London Film
Festival. It was also presented last
December at a special screening as part
of the Rendez-Vous with French Cinema
held in Singapore.

A Total
Movie Experience
The Gaumont and Pathé theaters are at the forefront
of technology and are the first in France to offer highly
innovative techniques for a unique film experience.
Extending 4K
The Gaumont and Pathé theaters were
the first in France to be equipped with
4K projection systems. With 87 digital
projectors, almost all Gaumont and Pathé
theaters in Europe are now equipped
for 4K. This projection system is
particularly suitable for large screens.
The resolution is four times higher
than with standard digital projectors,
giving the picture remarkable depth
of colour and definition.
HFR Projection
48 Les Cinémas Gaumont Pathé screens
in Europe allow filmgoers to experience
films in a different way thanks to new HFR
(High Frame Rate) technology, which
doubles the standard projection speed
to 48 images per second and enhances
the flow of movement to provide striking
realism. Filmgoers were able to experience
this new innovation with The Hobbit:
An Unexpected Journey by Peter Jackson,
who says: “[…] It is critical that
filmmakers employ current technology
to increase the immersive, spectacular
experience that cinema should provide.”
The Imax® Projection System
Les Cinémas Gaumont Pathé is the only network
in France and the Netherlands to offer screens
equipped with Imax® technology. This unique
projection system offers filmgoers the most
complete film experience.
In 2012, a large number of films were presented
in Imax® format including: HOUBA! On the Trail
of the Marsupilami by Alain Chabat, The
Avengers by Joss Whedon, The Dark Knight Rises
by Christopher Nolan, Men in Black III by Barry
Sonnenfeld, The Amazing Spider-Man by Mark
Webb, The Bourne Legacy by Tony Gilroy, Skyfall
by Sam Mendes and The Hobbit: An Unexpected
Journey by Peter Jackson.
In 2012, the film Skyfall, projected in Imax®, was seen by a large number of filmgoers
in the Netherlands; in France, The Dark Knight Rises, also screened in this format,
attracted a large number of filmgoers.

PROGRAMMING
THE Big Day Out for Kids
The Gaumont and Pathé theaters present a day of family
fun at the movies: a special day of programming for
children at 33 of the chain’s theaters.
On the programme: three films, two of which are sneak
previews. The Big Day Out for Kids is designed to be
fun for all ages thanks to child-friendly screens which
are decorated for the event.
The Gaumont and Pathé theaters take a highly creative approach
to programming, embracing films from every genre and for
every type of filmgoer, special selections and film events for
the widest possible audience.
CinENightClub!
The Gaumont and Pathé
theaters have created a
CinéNightClub! Enjoy the best
films in the history of screen
musicals in a party
atmosphere full of surprises.
On the programme for 2012:
Rock Forever by Adam
Shankman, Dirty Dancing
by Emile Ardolino, and Grease
by Randal Kleiser.
Subtitling for the Deaf
and Hearing-Impaired
Once upon a time…
This event for film buffs is a
must for anyone who wants to
revisit the great film classics.
Each screening is preceded by
a presentation by film critic
Philippe Rouyer. In April,
filmgoers have been able to
revisit Stanley Kubrick’s
44
masterpiece Barry Lyndon,
Apocalypse Now by Francis Ford
Coppola in digitally remastered
form, and last but not least,
Les Demoiselles de Rochefort
by Jacques Demy.
Digital technology has made it possible to embed
French subtitles at the bottom of the screen (VFST)
so that deaf and hearing-impaired filmgoers can
have the optimum cinema experience. The Gaumont
and Pathé theaters organised special screenings
right across their network for the launch of the film
HOUBA! On the Trail of the Marsupilami in April 2012.
Every month, a number of films are now presented in
VFST. In 2012, 22 films were shown in VFST: What’s in
a Name? by Matthieu Delaporte and Alexandre de La
Patellière, Happiness Never Comes Alone by James
Huth, Bowling by Marie-Castille Mention-Schaar,
Camille Rewinds by Noémie Lvovsky, Mais qui a
re-tué Pamela Rose? by Kad Merad and Olivier
Baroux and My Heroes by Eric Besnard.
