"The Chaser" heavily promoted in Paris

I don't know about you, but I found this quite surprising and refreshing - you'd just never get that over here. We advertise all the Hollywood blockbusters and a few home-grown films and that's it. The only foreign language films we'd bother promoting would be hardcore "art" films or one of the really major martial arts stars' latest products.
