Bean Meets Sabine

7 Feb 2019

One of the many iconic scenes in this movie sees Mr. Bean and Sabine finally introduced properly, not to mention Bean discovering Sabine owns a Mini almost identical to his. It is located on the D176 road not far from the set of Carson Clay’s Fruzzi commercial in Oppède, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.

Bean walks down a road in the French countryside.

Non, it can’t be! Mr. Bean turns and sees something familiar travelling down the road.

Dunlop, oui!

In the shot inside Sabine’s Mini, we can see what appears to be a vineyard through her driver side window. In July 2013, Google Street View shows the vineyard is not there and overgrown with grass. I don’t know much about growing grapes, but perhaps the soil was being given a rest until a later season.
