Bordeaux, city in the spotlight

Bordeaux is the ninth largest city in France in terms of population, but in terms of cinema, it is in the top 5. The Sucker, Queen Margot or Mamma Mia 2, so many films have fought to shoot in the city twinned with Los Angeles.

More recently, a new Chinese series has decided to settle down in Bordeaux: Crocodile and Toothpick Bird. It is expected by about 80 million viewers. The plot of this romantic comedy is mainly located in the city center of Bordeaux, especially in the university pole of Place de la Victoire, but also Place de la Bourse, the water mirror or in the public garden playing the role of the campus of the Bordeaux university.

The choice of this city by the production is explained by “the classicism of the sets, the reactivity of the town hall but also this classic image of an old, bourgeois Europe, instantly readable and understandable for Chinese spectators”Mr. Priot, the French producer of the series, explained in an interview with Libération October 30, 2018.

Bordeaux also stands out, in China as elsewhere, by the reputation of its wines. 67% of French wines exported to China come from the Bordeaux region.
