From Amélie to Zazie:
A whole new way to experience the magic of Paris
Maybe you know Paris from a previous visit. Maybe you know it from a history or art class. But all of us know Paris from the movies.
Now Michael Schürmann, a Paris-based freelance translator and sportscaster, brings the Paris of your imagination to life as he guides you through a movie lover’s wonderland of cinematic memories.
Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face, Audrey Tautou in Amélie, Tom Everett Scott as the eponymous American Werewolf in Paris, Jean Reno and Steve Martin in the remake of The Pink Panther, and lovers Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond in the 1995 version of Sabrina.
From Charade to French New Wave classics to Hollywood blockbusters like The Da Vinci Code, you’ll find these unique walks take you to places you’ve never been—but all the places you remember!
To this day, Paris remains one of the most active film locations in the world. And when editors field-tested the walks, they encountered four active film shoots, including a John Travolta movie. So if you find yourself on one of Schürmann’s trails and get “discovered” by a film director, perhaps you’ll be one of the stars of the next edition of Paris Movie Walks.
