Filming for the Absolutely Fabulous Movie was split between the UK and France. The UK locations were mainly around London including a lot of filming in a modern house on Ranulf Road, Hampstead which was used as Eddie's House. The French locations focussed on noticeable buildings such as Hotel Martinez in Cannes and Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat.
Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamor, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London's trendiest hot-spots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more!
