The latest Golden Palm winner, The Class (original title Entre Les Murs) rushed to the top, while another new release, Paris 36 (original title Faubourg 36) took the second spot. The third place was filled by the comedy Let It Rain (original title Parlez-Moi De La Pluie) in its second week of release (check it out at the New York Film Festival on October 10th).
