Book Reviews: The Film Lover’s Paris
Paris doesn’t need to be put on the map, but it continues to surprise with its growing number of must-see locales. In this inspired guide, we are taken through the city’s most iconic film spots, from famous restaurants to quirky shops and grocery stores.
The 200+ pages are a joy to flick through thanks to photographer Pierre-Olivier Signe’s keen eye for character and special details, such as the exquisite close-ups of Brasserie Julien’s art nouveau wall panels that would otherwise melt into the background. The accompanying place descriptions, contact information and handy price rating system are welcome features, as are the QR codes, which enable readers to view trailers for the films mentioned before stepping into the shoes of their favourite actors when they visit.
Chaptered by neighbourhood, The Film Lover’s Paris acts as an essential tour guide for Paris fans and film afficionados alike.
