France is the world's leading tourist spot for good reason—the architecture, art and culture of France is richer than any country in modern times. Avoiding France as a movie location is impossible, especially for big-budget mainstream titles because its beauty is impeccable and picturesque in almost every angle.

Almost everyone has seen the exciting espionage and thrills brought about by "The Bourne Identity" in 2002. Matt Damon's Jason Bourne is lost in France as he has lost his own memory of his identity and history. In one scene, he arrives in the iconic and beautiful busy railway station of Gare du Nord in Paris. The structure boasts a huge triumphal arc with sculptures showing the destinations of trains outside France.

According to Conde Nast Traveler, Carre Marigny was iconic because this was where Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant's characters in the 1963 classic film "Charade" as the two hunt down James Coburn's character in the story. The stamps market is astounding with its selection of stamps hounded by stamp collectors worldwide.

"Midnight in Paris" starring an obsessed-with-the-art-glamour-of-the-past Gil played by Owen Wilson took a break after drinking and sat down on the steps of Montmartre in Paris. Located in the fifth Arrondissement behind the Pantheon, the steps show a view of the lively night streets of Paris, and the wonderful architecture of the Eglise Saint-Etienne-du-mont Church.

According to The Local France, Montmartre has a village-like feel thanks to "Amelie", French cinema's modern contender for most famous international French film. The quirky eponymous character Amelie serves at the Cafe des Deux Moulins, a corner cafe that exudes the beauty of Paris' streets and coffee culture.

Lastly, "Before Sunset" featured the bookstore Shakespeare and Co. Ethan Hawke's character gave a book signing and even Owen Wilson stayed in the bookstore looking at the selection after filming a scene for "Midnight in Paris."
