Le ballon rouge - Albert Lamorisse (1956)

From Renoir's La Chienne to Godard's Breathless and Truffaut's 400 Blows, Paris is the setting for many of cinema's most memorable moments. Cinemacity, a new app for Android and iOS by ArteFrance and Small Bang Studio, aims to help you re-experience those moments in the very spots they were first filmed. Using the phone's GPS, the app matches hundreds of film clips with the physical location where they were shot allowing users to stroll through Paris and visit the settings of scenes from their favorite films. The app, which covers everything from early 20th century film to the most recent releases, also includes several complete, thematic walks through the city with guidance and information in either French, English or German.
