After boarding a Eurostar train and arriving in Paris, the French language proves a barrier for Bean, as he struggles to get across the city to catch a train to the south of France from the Gare de Lyon. Taking time to order a meal, he finds the consumption of a seafood platter to be a challenge. Just before catching his train, he asks Emil, a Russian film director on his way to be a judge at the Cannes Film festival to use his camcorder to record his boarding, but accidentally causes Emil being left behind at the station. Bean attempts to cheer up the director's son Stepan as the train continues south but matters are made more hectic by the fact that Emil has reported his son to have been kidnapped and Bean losing his wallet and essential travel documents at a pay phone where he and Stepan attempt to contact Emil.

During the scene where Sabine, played by Emma de Caunes, falls deeply asleep in the car, she shifts her body to press up against the window and snores loudly. This is Emma really snoring as she asked for the scene to be believable and if she could really be put to sleep. The directors approved her request, and she took a sleeping pill. However, she did not know that she snored on camera and was highly embarrassed by the window/snoring moment. See more »

Incorrectly translated in the English Language subtitles as "idiot", however "idiot" in French has the exact same meaning as in English. The French word "connard" has a much more offensive meaning that is not suitable for a G rated movie. See more »

Although it doesn't really relate to anything in the movie, there is one final scene at the very end of the credits; We see Bean filming through his Video Camera and writing "Fin" in the sand (which means "The End" in French) with a final look through the camera, the water comes up and washes the word anyway...just as the battery on the camera finally runs out...with the screen going black.

I enjoyed a lot this movie...it made me lo-ugh for the first time in a long time...Rowan Atkinson does a wonderful performance playing Mr. Bean...The story of the movie is simple:Mr. Bean wins a trip to France...But in reaching France he passes through a lot of adventured, partly of his lack of knowledge of the language...I liked the idea of the movie, the lack of dialogs, made me like more this movie and especially enojy Mr. Bean's gags...Another thing that i liked is the fact that this film is fille with very interesting scenes,very funny and original...The "tie scene" and "doing everything not to fall asleep scene" are in my opinion very original...I awnt to add that the movie also had some sad parts, but this made me appreciate all the more this movie...I gave it a 7 cause it really impressed and changed my day.
