In 2001, "Le Fabuleux Destin D'Amélie Poulin" became a hit in cinemas around the world, as Amélie charmed us through her colorful view of Paris. This experience takes you to many of the key sites in the film. There will be plenty of opportunities for photos, and I'll even bring my gnome! Along the way we'll discuss the film from use of color, inspiration, digitization and the challenges of shooting on location. Please realize Paris has been idealized/beautified for the film.
Tour lasts 2-3 hours and is approximately 5 miles so please wear comfy shoes!
Note: As a freelancer I don't take bookings more than 1-month in advance (in order to avoid cancellations), but also I'm happy to accept very last minute bookings too (when available)! *Please message me before booking. Merci!*
We'll start at Canal St. Martin where Amèlie skipped stones (unfortunately we can't skip our own, but we can get close!), visit Gare de l'Est, pop-up to Montmartre for Sacre Coeur, the metro where she leads the blind man, Maison Colignon (the vegetable stand), and I'll leave you at the Cafe aux Deux Moulins where Amélie worked where you can enjoy a crème brulée if that suits your taste!
Bring 5€ for the photomaton if you want to take your picture with the gnome!
Note: You will need metro tickets for this experience.
How it works:
1. Message me with an initial questions and to make sure I'm available.
2. Book the tour! (Typically 10am or 2pm are good start times)
3. I'll email you at your personal email to confirm everything.
4. We have an awesome tour together!
5. I'll make sure you know everywhere we visited together!
It's a good idea to re-watch the movie before your visit to make the most out of our time together!
