South Korean documentary My Love, Don’t Cross That River topped the country’s box office over the weekend of Dec. 12-14, rising past Hollywood blockbusters Interstellar and Exodus: Gods and Kings.

The tiny indie film, about a Korean couple very much in love after 76 years of marriage, is proving to be a sleeper hit. The title distributed by CGV Movie Collage grabbed 31.6 percent of weekend sales, according to the Korean Film Council’s KOBIS database.

It has earned a cumulative $7.59 million since opening on just a handful of screens on Oct. 23. The film is now being shown on 801 screens and has earned filmmakers more than 70 times what it cost them. They had a microbudget of more than $100,000.
