Roissy’s lineup at Berlin includes Gallic box office phenom “Friends Forever,” a sequel 25 years after the cult “Les Bronzes” comedy franchise. Pic has notched up more than 6 million admissions in less than two weeks on French screens.

Roissy has struck distribution deals on the new pic with distribbers in Greece and the C.I.S. territories.
