“For it is the obsessive collection of film stills, of contemporary colour photographs of the shot locations shown in 46 scenes around Paris, the commissioning and editing of seven useful essays by academics with long publishing pedigrees (eg Professor of Modern French Studies, Keith Reader) , and the commissioning and editing of 46 short scene-setters by a range of over 30 contributors that gives the book its value. As a reference book or as a guide book for film fans heading for Paris this year it is perfect…In conclusion this book should be useful to three groups of reader (i) those heading for Paris on holiday who want to find more interesting cultural spots in the city, (ii) the French film specialist, academic or enthusiast and
(iii) those studying movie-induced tourism and consumption.”
