We Made a Guide Through Nice. A Movie Guide.


Once we had an article, called "A Guide for People Who Don’t Like Guides", which was devoted to Venice and it was written in style of fiction books (check it out!). We decided not to make you wait too long for unusual guides and made another one. After hundreds of movies and empty bags of popcorn we are ready to explore fascinating Nice. Are you with us? ;)

Why a movie guide? Well, Nice is honored to be called as a French Hollywood. Local landscapes are not only beautiful, but also very photogenic and, thus, very attractive for directors all around the world. It's hard to leave this place without inspiration.

Never Say Never Again
Shall we really introduce this film? Sean Connery is one of the best agents in the whole series of James Bond movies. In "Never Say Never Again" he rides a motorcycle on the stairs of Mentone, falls into an ambush in Monaco, spins intrigues in Casino Monte Carlo, and, finally, saves another beauty out of the castle - Fort Careé in Antibes.

The Jewel of the Nile
Cannes. International film festival. In The Jewel of the Nile with Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner everything starts exactly here: a luxurious party, where the main heroine is going to present her book.

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
How can one talk about France without mentioning various aromas? At least Grasse (a perfume capital of France) is worth mentioning. We bet Jean-Baptiste Grenouille is an excellent guide: he will show you dark Grasse and tell you about various aromas. But you’d better be careful…Jean-Baptiste is not very… reliable…

Grace of Monaco
The movie is about American actress who becomes a princess. Of course, the main focus is the Prince's Palace of Monaco and Monte Carlo. The reaction of the princely family of Monaco was ambiguous. By the way, the love story of Grace Kelly and Rainier III started exactly in Nice, on the Cannes Film Festival in 1955.

The Iron Mask
When you come to Lérins Islands, don’t forget to explore the fort, built by Cardinal Richelieu and take a look at the dungeon, where used to be a mysterious prisoner. After publishing Alexandre Dumas’ novel “The Vicomte of Bragelonne: Ten Years Later” everyone considered him to be an illegitimate son of Louis XIV of France. There are many movies, based on this book, but “The Iron Mask” (1929) is considered to be the best one.
