Cinéma Parisien 2

The Bir-Hakeim bridge is a famous "filmbridge", in Trois Couleurs: Blue in which Juliette Binoche has to cope with the dead of her husband and daughter. The others of the trilogy Trois couleurs : Blanc and Rouge I did like less.

In Peur sur la ville Jean-Paul Belmondo as a police-officer walks on parisian roofs, persuits some one in the Galleries Lafayette an does a stunt on metro line 6 . The bridge is a photogenic bridge with 2 fligths, one for cars down and one for the metro up.

When Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider first meet in Last tango in Paris, it's on the bridge. And the aparment they visit is nearby the bridge. When they dance "their tango" it's at the restaurant La Coupole.

An American in Paris with Gene Kelly and Lesie Caron uses the Pont d'Archéveché between l'Ile de la Cité and the right bank where they dance and sing in the night.

The Opera Garnier plays a major role in The Phantom of the Opera. The history is based on a classic French novel by Gaston Leroux. Leroux's original 1910 novel is set in late 19th century Paris at the Opera Garnier. And indeed there is a subterreaen small lake where the guardians keep fish in.

The Opera has an extraordinary income and this imposant place with a marble staircase is often used as decor - as a hotel lobby in Interview with a vampire or as ballroom in Marie Antoinette. Sofia Coppola was very lucky to film on location in Chateau de Versailles.

Les aventures de Rabbi Jacob of the famous French comic Louis de Funès did put the Café de Flore et Les deux Magots on the map.

When we furnished our apartment, we also started a DVD collection with main themes : Paris, Romance, Music and of course a lot of classics.
