Jacques Clouseau (Steve Martin)

An incompetent and technically inept policeman, Jacques Clouseau (Steve Martin) is chosen by Inspector General Dreyfus (Kevin Kline) to investigate the theft of the Pink Panther.

The country gendarme goes up to Paris to be appointed inspector and solve this theft and the murder of Yves Gluant (Jason Statham).

From now on, the brand new inspector lives in the capital at 2 rue des Barres.

Nicole (Emily Mortimer) comes in to do some cleaning, Ponton (Jean Reno) regularly drops him off at the bottom of his house in a Smart Fortwo and catches Nicole and Clouseau in strange poses while Clouseau causes a general blackout in all of Paris by wanting to “download” a ringtone on his phone.

2 Rue des Barres

The rue des Barres is one of the oldest streets in Paris, so it must be full of history. The number 2 is teeming with them.

426 ft long and 32 ft wide, the rue des Barres in Paris owes its name to an old place called “Les Barres”, first mentioned in 1152.

The mills on the Seine were scattered all over this place, which probably got its name from the medieval walls of Paris or from the barriers along the river.

At number 2, in 1250, a hotel was built, called Hôtel des Barres then Hôtel de Charny. It was destroyed in the 19th century to make way for the present building, which still preserves the front of an old bakery.
