Mr. Bean's Holiday

Synopsis: Mr. Bean enters a church raffle and wins a vacation trip to France as well as a camcorder. 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. Heading in the direction of Cannes, Bean finds himself in the cast and disrupting

One last question,

Out of the way!

Out of the way!


Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop!


Are you here for lunch?

Follow me.

May I recommend the seafood platter?



What is this?

What's this?

Don't forget the langoustines.


Could you video me?


No, back. Back a bit.

Back, back, back, back, stop.


No, no, no, no.

Back, back, I'II...

We'll do it again, eh?

Stop. Help!

Open... Open the door.

There's nothing here.



Help! Help! Open...

My bag.

Look at that...


Stay calm.


The train's not stopping.

Papa, what should I do?

His fingers are over the last two numbers.

Come on.

I gave him my number. He will ring.

Don't worry, he will ring.

Stop them!


I'm hungry.

Come on.

Do you have some proper music?

Something that I'd like to listen to.

Okay, never mind. Bye.

To Cannes?


What the...

What's this?




Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait...

Wait, wait!

Oh, yeah!

Oh, yeah!

Oh, yeah!

Cut! Cut! Cut!

What the hell is he doing?

Where did he come from?

Some of us here

are trying to make a work of art!

Everyone, back in position!

Get him in something different

and put him in the background.

You, sweetheart. You never stop, okay?

Remember, you're crazy

for the taste of Fruzzi yogurt.

Well, how long does it take to reset?

Then why is everyone

moving in slow motion?

Yeah, there's a hook.

Cannes jury member Emil Dachevsky,

the Russian film director,

explained that his son Stepan was last seen

on a train with a mysterious foreigner.

As soon as I saw him I thought, "He's evil."



The guy with the video camera is fired.

You're fired!


Down again!

- Are you ready?

- Yep.


Cut! Cut! Cut!

My explosion!

Where's my explosion?

All I want is an explosion.

A little, tiny explosion.

Is that too much to ask?

Damn it.

Is it really so hard for you guys?

I mean, all you have to do is this.


You saved my life earlier.

Going far?

Isn't she a beauty?


I'm going to Cannes.

Cannes. Cannes.

Come on, get in.

Look at this.

So, you're Spanish?


What is that accent?


Let me guess.

You're not Italian?

- No.

- No.


And you're not Greek, no?

You are...

You're Russian, yes?

- What kind of idiot are you?

- What kind of duck are you?

My name is Sabine.

I am Sabine... And you are?




Bean. Sabine.

Bean. Sabine.

Bean, Sabine. Bean, Sabine. Bean, Sabine.

Bean, Sabine.

Do you like my costumes?

I love dressing up.

My invitation to the Cannes Film Festival.

Remember the director

of the yogurt commercial?

Cut. Cut.

I have a small part in his film.

I'm going to be a big star.

He says it's his masterpiece.

I need the loo.


I never got on the bus.

I was with these cool guys.


I can't wait to show this to Papa.

It's amazing meeting your son like that.

Is she your girlfriend?

You're full of surprises.

Are you going to marry her?

So does that mean you're married?

Telephone! Papa!

Estelle, tell me you love me or it's over.

We made it.

The sea! I can see the sea!

Thank you.

Can you video me now?

You can see Cannes over there.

Oh, my goodness,

the premiere starts in an hour.

Bienvenue and welcome

to the 59th Cannes

International Film Festival.

And on the red carpet is Mr Carson Clay,

the director of our premiere, Playback Time.

And jury member Mr Emil Dachevsky,

attending today despite there being

no news of his missing son.

I'm going to get changed.

Fill her up.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Mr Carson Clay.

This film is for all of us
