isn't it romantic?

Does anyone know the name of the restaurant in Paris in Something's Gotta Give?

Brian asked in the comments of this entry, he'd like to suprise his wife and I thought we could help him out.

All together now:


Update: Melissa comes through..

Le Grand Colbert

And there is info and some production photos, captions en francais, at this site.

Here's one with Keanu in it....


Thanks to everyone in the comments for the info and translations.

You guys roq.

I believe it was filmed at Le Grand Colbert.

Awesome, Melissa.
:) I emailed him.

For anyone interested, here is a link of some pics of the filming at the restaurant. No Keanu though, just crew. Text is in French, but the pics are cool.

I guess it would help if I actually looked at the link before I told you the text was in French. The text on main page is in English, and there is text in French when you click on pics.

Just looked at those pics Melissa and there is one of Keanu. Third row, second picture. He's far away though. The caption says: "An excellent actor, smiling and very famous whom all will have recognized..."

The rest of the captions are pretty boring, so I won't bother with translations. There is a pretty long one where they're complaining about the US job description for Second Assistant, which doesn't match the French description and caused *gasp* a German Second Assistant to be hired.

Mais bien sûr, there is a KPic, and the text says:
"Un excellent acteur, célèbre et souriant et que tous auront reconnu…"
An excellent actor, well-known and smiling and we all have recognized him...

Quelle horror! How did I miss that one? Thanks guys. I guess I need to make that appointment with the eye doctor that I have been putting off!

Oops, Zen, we must have been at the site at the same time! Why didn't we meet? ;-)

...and no wonder they hired a German Second Assistant, as Michael Ballhaus, the Director of Photography, is German, and sometimes still teaches courses at Hamburg University...

I did feel a slight breeze as I was surfing there, it must have been you Niobe. ;) And it looks like I switched famous and smiling. I was translating from memory. Are you from France?

Posted by: Zen on December 17, 2003 06:43 PM

...nooo, I'm from Hamburg/Germany, so English is my 2nd language, French my third and I'm out of practice traduissant le français into English...

I just want to say to everyone how great a bunch of ladies/gals/chicks (hey and even you guys) you are. Going to this site every day really gives me something to which to look forward .

I wish I'd had sisters like this growing up. (Just 2 "stinkin'" brothers).'re "excellent"!

That is just too sweet! I have to say, it seems like the husbands of keanu lovin' wives are a magnificent bunch--or at least, a very understanding bunch! It makes sense, though, given what we find appealing in a man...

A nice Christmas good deed, krix, and brian certainly came to the right place for an answer.

Rhonda from tx, you said it right--I never had sisters either, and I just realized that this is what (hopefully) it would be like!
