While watching Fantastic Mr. Fox, the other day, I noticed in the movie’s little town, among other shops signs, one that looks very familiar to me: DUTRONC DETECTIVE.
Well, the reason is simple: I see this sign almost every day from the bus that brings me home, from the Marais to Montmartre. The real shop sign is DULUC DETECTIVE (18, Rue du Louvre), but the shape, the font, the neon light, are exactly the same.
I guess Dutronc is a tribute to French singer/actor Jacques Dutronc.
I took a picture of it today: think about it when you watch the movie!
I know, it is just a stupid detail, but isn’t that adorable?!
In Wes we trust,
