Where James Bond (Daniel Craig) goes to find his former colleague Rene Mathis (Giancarlo Giannini) in Quantum of Solace. After supposedly betraying Bond in Casino Royale, Mathis was tortured and imprisoned. Later exonerated, he retired to Talamone, where MI6 bought him a villa as compensation. He lives there with girlfriend, Gemma (Lucrezia Lante della Rovere). Mathis agrees to join Bond on a trip to La Paz, Bolivia, where Mathis has connections. He also supplies 007 with a new passport and credit cards—since they were revoked by MI6.
