The other day I was up in Montmartre and came across a French movie being made. It has to do with the period of WWII in Paris when it was occupied by the Germans and the Jewish people had to wear yellow stars on their clothing and then getting sent to concentration camps. I wish I could have gotten a photo of some of the actors but it wasn’t allowed.
A street sign which must look like what you would have seen in the neighborhood. I wonder if a closeup of it will even make it into the movie. It’s just one of the details they do to make it all look real.
Would you believe that the sculpture of Dalida is under this? They had to cover it because she was a popular pop singer in France in the 60’s who lived up in Montmartre. I imagine there were some tourists walking around with maps trying to find it in vain.
There wasn’t a boulangerie there so they attached one to an ordinary door going into a residence. I found it fascinating to watch it all put together and it gave me a little thrill to hear the director yell, “Action!” movie junkie that I am.
PS-I am actually back in Provence but have quite a few photos taken from my time in Paris.
