Video: Menton tour

Menton, dubbed “The Pearl of France”, has provided a location for over 60 films since 1934, starting with Marcel Carné’s La Pension Mimosa. Other films made in Menton include Mobius (2013) and The Son’s Room (2001). The most recent, Grace of Monaco, is a tribute to film star Grace Kelly, played by Nicole Kidman, which will be released in 2013.

This short video accompanies my Menton blog post and looks at some of the city’s locations of interest to film fans.
