Bar L'Académie de la Bière
The adventure of Nina (Hande Kodja) and Lizzy (Céline Sallette) really begins in front of the bar L’Académie de la bière in La Rochelle. An establishment that director Patrick Grandperret only partially exploits since the sequence takes place on the terrace. Where Lizzy finds an acquaintance with whom she has already flirted.
If the shooting of Meurtrières took place partly in Paris, for the introduction scenes, the majority of the production was located in La Rochelle. The Poitou-Charentes region agreed to co-finance the film on the condition that it employs local technicians and actors and that the director makes part of his expenses locally. Patrick Grandperret having thus walked his cameras along the streets and other bars and restaurants of the city, before leaving for the island of Ré.
Meurtrières won the President of the Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard selection at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006.
Académie de la Bière
A meeting place for beer lovers, this bar is located in one of the most popular areas of La Rochelle.
Located in the courtyard of the temple, in downtown La Rochelle, this bar is a must. Offering a wide variety of beers, more or less known, craft or other, this establishment also shines thanks to its location, near the Charruyer park, north of the Old Port and a few blocks away from the museum Le Bunker de La Rochelle.
