Where Ronin was Shot

Not all news are good news, of course, and today’s update is not about a Parisian movie site that was recently found but about one that has been lost.

"Rue Drevet where Robert DeNiro appears in film Ronin  in Paris"

The stairway on which Robert DeNiro appears in Ronin, out of the blue Parisian night, is still there, connecting the Rue des Trois Freres and Rue Berthe in Montmartre, but the Irish bar run by Natasha McElhone at its bottom end, where two meetings of the “rogue Samurai” neatly bookend the film, has disappeared in a fire.

In its latest (and presumably last) incarnation, the place – while nominally a restaurant with specialties from Madagascar – had actually been a cocktail bar that had acquired some fame across Paris for the quality and low price of its drinks.

Nobody knows what caused the fire. I personally suspect that it was the work of renegade Irish Republicans under the leadership of that ghastly Jonathan Pryce.
