“Eddy, you my faithful friend

Grand Prince of the BIS

For a long time to come you’ll be mourned

For a long time to come we’ll miss you.

Because when you leave the BIS

You let no enemy

Only a few dear friends

Unhappy, sad and bitter

Eddy, why did you leave

Over there so far south?

Eddy, why did you leave

Leaving your old buddy Tweety?”

Farewell poem to Eddy Valence (Daniel Duval) by Titi Brasseur (Francis Renaud)

Léo (Daniel Auteuil) and his colleagues came to celebrate the transfer of Eddy Valence (Daniel Duval) to one of the restaurants of the Passage des Panoramas in the 2nd arrondissement of the capital.

He was then offered the street sign “Quai des Orfèvres” and Titi Brasseur (Francis Renaud) declaimed a farewell poem in homage to him.

The Jacques-Deray Prize for French detective films is awarded to 36 quai des Orfèvres.

The passage of the Panoramas is considered one of the main Parisian places of philatelic trade. When it opened in 1799, it was the first in Europe to be covered. As for Caffè Stern, installed in an old engraving workshop in this passage of the Panoramas, he appears in Patricia Cornwell’s detective novel, Cadavre X.

Passage des Panoramas

The passage des Panoramas is considered as one of the main Parisian places of philatelic trade.

When it opened in 1799, the Panorama Passage was the first in Europe to be covered. Listed as a historical monument in 1974, it had more than sixty stores.

It was named after the panoramas – large-format 360-degree paintings – on the walls of two rotundas 17 meters in diameter.

One of the important places of the passage is located at n°47. The Caffè Stern has settled in an old engraving workshop of this passage of the Panoramas. It is decorated with Cordoba leather, 17th century woodwork, 16th century stained glass windows, but also with a chandelier, ornate fireplaces and Murano columns.
