This article discusses “Where was the Netflix film Heart of Stone filmed” and may contain minor plot references.
Gal has almost become known for just showing up for thirty seconds in everyone else’s films, so it’s good to see her back in a lead role.
In Heart of Stone, Gal plays Rachel Stone, a secret agent on a mission to stop the nefarious plans of a hacker, intent on causing global chaos.
The feature was directed by Tom Harper, whom you might remember from such films as Wild Rose and The Aeronauts, and TV’s stylishly violent period drama Peaky Blinders and was co-written by DC Comics and Star Wars audio contributor Greg Rucka.
You can read a full review of the film right here at Ready Steady Cut, and it’s certainly worth a read, but this companion piece is more invested in the locations used for the film rather than the actual movie.
It seems that director Harper was once stunned by some amazing scenery that he encountered while holidaying in Lisbon.
Struck by the landscape, the director mused at how incredible a car chase through that location would look.
It seems that this project has given him the opportunity to present some stunning set pieces in iconic locations, so if you have watched the film, you might want to check out some of the scenes we spotted, as we answer the question: Where was Heart of Stone filmed?
Where was Heart of Stone filmed? – A breakdown of locations
Location 1: The Italian Alps, Glacier Hotel Grawand, Senales
In true James Bond style, the film uses many different locations.
We open in the Italian Alps, and it’s hard not to notice the nods to Fleming’s super spy as Gadot is seen in a casino before parachuting off a cliff after a gripping chase.
The sequence was filmed at The Glacier Hotel, which is known for being the only hotel that actually looks down on the Alps, not up.
Location 2: Portugal
Here’s the area where Harper was inspired to film after traveling through it previously.
A hair-raising chase sequence, echoing Mission: Impossible, was filmed in Lisbon, fulfilling a directorial dream of Harper’s.
The geography of the area provided the perfect setting for this sequence and the chase goes right through the central square of the city.
Location 3: Reykjavík, Iceland
The epic third-act finale has a couple of iconic landmarks that are easy to spot, including the Harpa Concert Hall and the Hallgrimskirkja Church.
The church is the tallest structure in the country and in the film, an incredible jump over the six-foot surrounding wall was achieved by motorcycle stuntman Dan Wyle.
Location 4: The Albert Hall, London
The amazing and instantly recognizable Albert Hall was actually used in the production, and director Harper must have pulled a few strings to get in there.
The Four Kings meet in the building, and in the background, you can see the real Philharmonic Orchestra performing an original piece of music in the background.
Previously, Harper had worked on a short film about the venue, celebrating its one-hundred-and-fiftieth anniversary, so it looks like he might have been able to use a little clout to get in again to film this scene.
Location 5: The Sahara Desert
All those desert scenes were filmed in Erfoud, Morocco, lending a real air of authenticity to the production.
The Mummy, Babel, and Alexander were all filmed there due to its amazing-looking vistas and accessibility.
You can watch this film with a subscription to Netflix.
