Is Anastasia a french movie?

No, but Paris does figure in the plot- far more than St.Petersburg or Moscow. one of the songs even goes- Paris is the key. a contest held by the producers of the film offered a free flight to Paris as a grand prize- in l997. Manhattan does NOt figure in the film but in some early pre-production posters there is a Manhattan skyscraper ( pre Empire state- as this would be in l922 the Diaspora)- Empire state was not completed until l93l.) this was later seen as inappropropriate and replaced with an image of the Eiffel Tower- a tale of Two skyscrapers. Eiffel- and Paris, did figure in the plot of the l997 Fox film (Anastasia).
