TV show

Sense8, a final in Paris

London, Berlin, Chicago, San Francisco, Seoul, Reykjavik, Nairobi, Bombay, Mexico City and then Paris. The City of Light had the honor of hosting the Sense8 cameras for the final episode. Places to discover now, and to find in the Paris guide of the 1000 cult places of films, series, music, comics and novels.

Abbesses Station

Located 36 m underground, this station is the deepest of the Parisian metro. It is from this one that Riley Blue and Will leave to go to this place where there is a magnificent merry-go-round. The two characters leave by the same metro station and are followed. Later, that’s also where Sun was arrested, before being rescued, in extremis, by Mun.

Arts and Crafts Station

Redecorated since 1994 by comic book authors François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters, the superb and atypical Arts et métiers metro station is the scene of a fight between Will and the mysterious person following them from the Abbesses metro station. It is one of the few RATP stations that do not have advertising on its platforms. Each of its portholes hosts a specific small-sized scenography, focused on imagination and discovery.

Sensitive Apartment (exterior)

When Rajan arrives in Paris to join Kala (Tina Desai), he is dropped off by taxi at this address. He enters the building through this door, opposite the famous Marché de la Butte. Later, they’re both tracked down here by the BPO. Only 40 m long, rue Androuet is one of the shortest streets in Montmartre. Jack Servoz, painter, poet and former dancer, exhibits his creations there.

Sensitive Apartment (Kala’s room)

It is in this building, on the penultimate floor, that the Sensitive apartment is located. The building is easily recognizable in the scene where Kala threatens to jump out of the window if Wolfgang (Max Riemelt) shoots himself in the head. The street has marked the history of fashion since it is at number 21 that Coco Chanel began her career in 1910, before opening, at number 31, her own fashion house in 1918.

RER bridge

The scene of ambush and treachery, orchestrated by Lila Facchini, takes place under the RER bridge. At the beginning of the 60s, Alain Delon and Romy Schneider lived in this street, at number 42.

Carrefour rue de la Vieuville -rue Garreau

Disguised in French with a caricatured outfit with a beret and a baguette of bread under his arm, Lito (Miguel Ángel Silvestre) warns the police of the terrorist risk posed by BPO agents. They’re stopped at this intersection.

Eiffel Tower

The fireworks were fired at the foot of the Eiffel Tower on October 22, 2017, creating a huge surprise for most Parisians who had not been informed of the shooting, and bringing the wedding ceremony between Nomi (Jamie Clayton) and Amanita (Freema Agyeman) to a close.

At the Marché de la Butte

When Rajan arrives in Paris to meet Kala, his taxi drops him off right in front of the Marché de la Butte, made famous by Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s film Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain.

Arab World Institute

Riley (Tuppence Middleton) and River El Sadawi meet in this cultural institute dedicated to the Arab world. Inaugurated in 1987, the building is easily identifiable by its moucharabiehs on the south façade. It was designed by Jean Nouvel and Architecture-Studio, and is a synthesis between Arab and Western cultures.

The Sensitive team had to relocate its operational office to a “motorized unit”. It is a pale pink truck that they park in front of the Provencal ice-cream maker Scaramouche. Jehan-Rictus Square, 150 m away, is home to the Wall of I love you, written in several languages, whose bursts of colour are the pieces of a broken heart brought together by so much love.
