Tasmina Perry's Favourite Movies Set in France by Tasmina Perry, author of The Last Kiss Goodbye

Today I am delighted to be part of the Blog Tour for The Last Kiss Goodbye by Tasmina Perry with a guest post of Tasmina Perry’s Favourite Movies Set in France.

 I loved this book, and one that I wished I had read so much sooner! This is undoubtedly a book for everyone, no matter what genre is your favourite! Don’t forget to visit other blog stops along the tour for other great content.

Below Tasmina shares  her favourite films set in France and let me tell you they are good ones 😉

Tasmina Perry’s Favourite Movies Set in France

I love setting parts of my books in France. It’s such a romantic and beautiful country that I keep gravitating to writing scenes there. I try and go as often as I can but I find the next best thing is indulging in a book or a movie set in France. Here are some of my favourite French-set films…..

French Kiss

It’s a bit silly this one but I absolutely love it. Jilted Meg Ryan chases her fiancé to France only to get mixed up with a roughish thief. Best location? The vineyards of Provence.


Such a quintessentially French movie, the story is as magical as the Montmartre setting


I almost called my book Gold-Diggers Priceless – and now I wish I did, if one to share a title with one of my favourite foreign movies. Gorgeous locations (Biarritz and the Riviera) and one of the cutest cinematic couples in Audrey Tatou and Gad Elmaleh.

Midnight in Paris

Woody Allen returns to form in this all-star cast movie set in Paris. Filmed at the beautiful Le Bristol hotel (which also appears in one of my books – Perfect Strangers) and the streets of Paris, I particularly like the scenes where Owen Wilson goes back in time to La Belle Époque.


I love the original Audrey Hepburn version of this movie – but the production team didn’t actually go to Paris. Sydney Pollack’s remake on the otherhand, starring Julia Ormond and Harrison Ford, had lots of glorious scenes in Paris, including a final, swoonsome scene on the Pont des Arts

Before Sunset

Who didn’t get a little crush on Ethan Hawke after Before Sunrise. The sequel is just as charming and moves the action from Vienna to Paris.


This one does star Audrey Hepburn and was filmed not only in Paris but in Megeve, my favourite ski resort in the world.

To Catch a Thief

Cary Grant – so suave. Grace Kelly – so beautiful. The Cote D’Azur – so sparkling and gorgeous. I could watch this movie again and again. And I have.

Betty Blue

When I was a student I used to go and see French art house movies a lot and this was one of my favourites. It’s quite raunchy but funny and moving too and the location are great too, especially the ramshackled beach house at the start of the movie.
