After Exceeding One Million Pounds Revenues in One Week
After Writer and Director Amr Salama's Excuse My French revenues exceeded 1 million Egyptian pounds in only one week since its release on Wednesday 22nd, 2014, in 32 Egyptian theatres across eight governorates, Al Massah Art Production and the United Artistic Group decided to increase the number of theatres screening the film to be 35 screens.
Commenting on this huge success, Producer Mohamed Hefzy, and founder of Film Clinic, stated, "Excuse My French achieved unexpected revenues and topped the rest of the films currently screening in theatres. Also the main purpose behind any film is not to be screened only in festivals that not all people manage to attend; we wanted the film to be seen by the whole Egyptian audience."
Written and directed by Amr Salama, Excuse My French is produced by Film Clinic and The Producers Films which runs by producer Hani Ossama. Starring Kinda Alloush, Hany Adel, and the talented child Ahmed Dash, the film is distributed in Egyptian theaters by Al Massah Art Production, whereas the United Artistic Group is handling its theatrical release across the world.
Only 3 days before its release in theaters, Excuse My French had its world premiere at the opening gala of Luxor Egyptian and European Film Festival on, January 19th, 2014.
The film tells the story of Hany Abdallah Peter, a child whose life turns upside down after the death of his father and his mother's discovery of the huge debts they have to pay. He is forced to experience the huge gap between classes after moving from his old elite private school to a public one. Things get complicated for Hany after having to hide being a Christian surrendering to the assumptions of his classmates and teachers who didn't read his full name and mistook him for a Muslim.
