Click to find films made near your favourite Paris haunts

Paris is a city beloved by filmmakers and filmgoers alike. Now residents and visitors can find out exactly which films have been shot in their neighbourhoods and favourite haunts, thanks to an interactive map published by news site Rue89.

Some 600 films can be searched by title, names of actors, directors and also by address. For the moment, the map is restricted to movies shot between 2002 and 2010 and the information is in French only.

Using the online tool, visitors can stroll the same streets as Owen Wilson in Woody Allen’s romantic Midnight in Paris, plunge into the topsy-turvy world of Christopher Nolan’s Inception (the best of the map's featured films, according to IMDB votes), or follow Liam Neeson’s hunt for his missing daughter in Pierre Morel’s 2008 Taken.

More sedentary visitors can simply punch in an address from the comfort of their hotel or café terrace and get a director's eye view of that location.

While the majority of the films (422) are French-made, the US tops the list of foreign contributors, with 34 American movies shot in the city.
