We couldn’t talk about this straight away (we promised the director), but Niels Arden Oplev – who gave us the original Girl With a Dragon Tattoo movie and more recently the remake of Flatliners) – filmed scenes for his new movie ‘Rose’ at the Hotel des Grands Hommes last October…
BAFTA winner Niels Arden Oplev has filmed his new movie ‘Rose’ in Paris and Denmark. With Sofie Gråbøl (also a BAFTA winner) playing one of the main roles, the story is set in 1997 and follows a coach of tourists travelling from Jutland in the north of Denmark to Paris.
The story focuses on the schizophrenia of one woman, Inger, travelling with her sister Ellen and Ellen’s husband. Inger’s mental issues provoke a number of situations, some of which are amusing, others much less so.
Oplev intends the film to show how people with a mental illness should not be scary, and how much they have to offer. It’s a film that tries to keep a light tone despite its serious subject matter.
For the film, spoken in Danish and due for release in the summer of 2021, the team set up a café terrace in front of the Hotel des Grands Hommes and filmed during the day and after nightfall.
With the ever-spectacular Pantheon opposite, it’s the perfect spot for a scene with tourists seeing the jaw-dropping sights of Paris for the first time!
As soon as a trailer is released, we’ll be sure to share it with you.
In the meantime, if you’d like a room with the same incredible view as in the film, go to the hotel’s website, where a number of special offers are still available… 😛
