Quai d’Anjou (L'incorrigible)

First we’ll take you on a nice walk along the Anjou quay on Ile Saint-Louis.  You’ll be able to admire some remarkable private town houses, an art gallery as well as the Saint-Louis Theater!  It’s also here that a scene from Paris was filmed in addition to a scene from l’Incorrigible.

 

Hotel France Louvre (Midnight in Paris)

In the world of the Woody Allen film, Midnight in Paris, here is a spot to visit in the 4th:  the Hotel France Louvre, situated right near the Louvre, the Beaubourg quarter and let’s not forget the famous Grévin Museum.

 

Place du marché Saint-Catherine (Les Petits mouchoirs, The Bourne Identity)

This splendid Saint-Catherine market square with wonderful Mulberry trees and almost entirely pedestrian is used as a terrace by many of the eating establishments.  We see it appear mainly in Les Petits Mouchoirs but also in The Bourne Identity.

 

7 rue Caron (Prête-moi ta main)

Right near the market square, you can access rue Caron. Other than the fact it is mentioned in the book by Cyrille Fleischman, Rendez-Vous Au Métro Saint-Paul, you’ll see  number 7 in the movie Prête-moi ta main.

 

Chez Julien (Gossip Girl)

Gossip Girl fans probably remember this place.  While Serena and Blair are on holiday in Paris, they meet in front of a café terrace.  The café, it’s here, chez Julien, situated at number 1 on rue du pont Louis-Philippe.

 

Café Restaurant Louis Philippe (Gossip Girl, The Ninth Gate)

And while we’re in the realm of Gossip Girl, here’s a second stop to make in the 4th arrondissement. It’s in the café restaurant Louis Philippe that another Paris scene from Gossip Girl was shot.  But, it’s also here that Johnny Deep filmed a scene from the movie The Ninth Gate.

 

L’appartement de l’inspecteur Clouseau (La Panthère rose)

If you happen to have committed a crime like stealing a big pink diamond, be sure not to pass by in front of 2 rue des Barres, or you might get caught by the famous inspector Clouseau! In the movie, The Pink Panther, Steve Martin decided to move in here after getting the promotion he’s been waiting his whole life for,  which  is actually nothing but a huge hoax…

 

L’étoile Manquante (Un Heureux évènement)

Not a better  vantage point to observe the Marais quarter than this rather sober  but efficient café, where one can write scenarios or novels.  Maybe even it’s here that Remi Bezançon filmed a scene from his movie, Un Heureux évènement.  

 

Mémorial de la Shoah (Elle s’appelait Sarah)

Our next stop is the Shoah Memorial (Mémorial de la Shoah) at 17 rue Geoffroy L’Asnier.  Here you’ll find a museum as well as a Documentation Center on the Shoah in addition to the history of the Jews in France during the Second World War.  It’s also here that a scene from the movie Elle s'appelait Sarah was filmed.

 

Paroisse Saint-Paul Saint-Louis (Before Sunset)

We’ll finish off this selection with the Saint-Paul Saint-Louis Parish Church.  This edifice, built between 1627 and 1641, appears in the 2004 film Before Sunset with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy.
