The producers of Final Portrait are filming in Carmarthen Place and Bermondsey Street on Friday, and French-style shopfronts have been installed along the street.

The film – starring Geoffrey Rush – focusses on the latter part of the life of the Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti. It is set in Paris in the late 1960s.

Final Portrait is directed by Stanley Tucci and is due for release in 2017.
