Top 10 Movies Set In Paris

Is there a more picturesque setting for a movie than the city of Paris? There are so many wonderful books and films from every genre set in the City of Lights. During my Twitter book launch party for A Magnificent Crime (which is set in Paris, of course!) it was one of our most lively discussions. I promised to write a round-up post of movies set in Paris, so here it is. I’ve managed to narrow it down and below are my top ten choices, in no particular order. (Including my all-time favorite film, which you’ll find at #10!)

1. Amelie (2001)


2. Midnight In Paris (2011)


3. Before Sunrise (1995)


4. Frantic (1988)


5. Gigi (1958)


6. An American In Paris (1951)


7. The Pink Panther (1963)


8. Ratatouille (2007)


9. Hugo (2011)


10. Moulin Rouge (2001)



So what do you think of my list? How many of these have you seen? Did I miss your favorite? Let me know!

Coming up next week…BOOKS set in Paris!

      Glad you like the list! Isn’t it interesting how Paris forms a wonderful backdrop, no matter if it’s a fast-paced thriller, a love story, or an animated comedy (and everything in between)?
