Rowan Atkinson stars as the affable but hopelessly klutzy Mr. Bean, who wins an all expenses paid trip to the South of France and uses a video camera to document his misadventures. On route to the Riviera he tries to help a young boy (Max Baldry) who was accidentally separated from his father, ruins a movie set and helps launch the career of a young actress (Emma De Caunes). Also with Willem Dafoe, Jean Rochefort and Karel Roden. Directed by Steve Bendelack. [1:28]
