More Locations

A year and a half ago I posted how I recognised the location of this shot in Ronin.

Ronin

I mentioned how I suspected a favorite film had also used the location, I can now confirm it: Goldeneye.

Goldeneye

I didn’t have it on DVD before, but since I’ve just been teaching projectiles to the year 13s I needed to get a copy… Like Ronin, it is filmed around Thorenc and Greolieres (there’s a shot of the latter); here’s the picture I snapped back then at the same location:

Also like Ronin, it takes liberties with the editing but worse than implying it’s a few seconds’ drive from Vieux Nice, it’s now behind Monaco!

  1. Year 13s, formerly the Upper Sixth, are seventeen year olds in what was traditionally the second year of A level (now A2). Projectiles is an applied maths topic – oh, sorry, let me translate: applied math topic – at the start of the Mechanics 2 unit. I find Goldeneye is invaluable for introducing this topic, whereas for centres of mass, which we start tomorrow, The Italian Job is far more appropriate.
