A superb light, an absent wind… The conditions were ideal this Monday 8 November 2021 p.m. for the director Denis Imbert who came to shoot the last scenes of his film The path of Peter to the nose of Jobourg. “This morning, I received a phone call saying ‘We’re on the road, we’re coming’. Immediately, I informed the Deputy Mayor ”, indicates Bérengère Fafin, secretary of the delegated town hall of Jobourg (Some).

“Incredible luck”

a filming all in discretion. Only the catering tents, a few trucks and large rental cars signaled that something special was happening at the entrance to the Nose de Jobourg site.

We are very happy that they chose Jobourg for the final scenes. It is an incredible opportunity and it is proof that he attaches importance to our region. In the film, the route is a bit of a diagonal. The fact that we are at its end is a bit symbolic, which is rather interesting.

A little word about the guestbook …

Arrived around noon in the Hague, the actor Jean Dujardin walked the paths a little near the nose of Jobourg to get in the mood then he did honor to the menu of theAuberge des Grottes, which displayed Saint-Jacques and Paleron accompanied by French toast and liquorice ice cream for dessert.

Previously in the south of the department then in Barneville-Carteret, the film crew The paths of Peter had posed camera and equipment for a day in the nose of Jobourg to shoot different sequences on the hiking trail as well as at the foot of the cliffs.

The film crew came to spot the places, they liked the sets. Amélie, Fabienne and I play the extras, an actor replaces me behind the bar.

François Courval, from technical services, had to water the road in front of the restaurant very early in the morning for filming purposes. A few filming trucks parked in front of the channel. Once the team was in place, Jean Dujardin made several appearances, entering and leaving the bar in front of the public. Then inside comes the moment when the famous “Silence, it’s spinning”. Everyone is asked to be silent, including on the port. The cars are stopped.


Some residents of Barneville-Carteret were present to see the “star” of the day. Roger D’Haene, great trainer (ex!) of trotters in La Manche, and his wife are among the curious.

I find it very good for Barneville-Carteret that there are shootings. It brings life and makes our tourist resort known. And it’s my wife’s birthday today! I hope that Jean Dujardin will accept a photo…

The shots ended at the end of the morning. Jean Dujardin and the whole team then took the road to La Hague for the last shots in the Cotentin after nine weeks of filming.
