Poule et Frites by Luis Rego was made here, in the eighties. I sang a song in it.

Under the Cherry Moon by Prince was also made here around the same time.

Hi,

Yes, Transporter 1 was filmed here, I saw them filming behind the Negresco.

Also one you probably haven't heard of; Quicksand with Michael Keaton and Michael Caine.  I was in that one!!!  Spent 2 days running across the Palais de Justice.

There's another one with Nick Nolte, The good thief, directed by Neil Jordan.  I was lucky enough to be at the wrap party in Wayne's many years ago.

Sure there are loads more.

Hi,

I have these three films with a bit of a Monaco theme!- the first two are in French with English subtitles- Priceless, filmed mostly around Monaco starring Audrey Tatou and also Heartbreaker with Vanessa Paradis and finally Monte Carlo which is probably more for the kids but a fun movie none the less.

Hope you like them!

Is not there an organazation or even gov. agency (permits) that you can contact/go see with everyrhing there in one place. Bet if you go to a french forum on film you will find your answer. Remember an asston kucker film filmed here a while back.

Thanks for those, especially the link to the list, and Mr Bean! Just found a new one, Double Team 1997, a Jean Claude Van Damme movie filmed everywhere around apparently.

A scene in French Kiss was shot in Valbonne and a Good Year in the Luberon (not the CdA but a neighbour)
