James Bond got to Shangai during the movie.

I did not recognize Shanghai on this one (still don't)... Searching on the net, it seems they digitally added the skyscrapers in the background, where Bond is driving to. The lower half of the middle tower is London's Broadgate Tower where the next scene is shot...
:facepalm:
There are fifty >200m tall skyscrapers in Shanghai but no...

It has a Ghibli's look (the blue sky, the type of drawing). Then by deduction on the type of character (who would feed birds) and clothing, rather a young woman/girl, rather Laputa's Sheela or Kiki. If you go to google and type ghibli+sheela+birds in order to confirm the guess you get some other stills of the same scene straight... That's the process... ;)

If you had prepared some other shots, feel free to share: I love the film !

That's quite interesting. I thought it was mostly pure visual memory but I see there is also much reasoning, attention to small details and even some external aids. I've got several wonderful stills from that and other past films but you're right, Ghibli's style is easily recognizable and nearly every frame in its films has at least one memorable iconic element. So they're probably not the best option for this game. Anyway, I think I'll keep them for the future.

Doesn’t look Iranian to me, it’s probably a variety of Arabic locations.
And the leads (assuming they are leads in the recent posts) don’t look Arabic so probably some international production but apart from that I am clueless.

Need some hints I guess...

Alright, hints, I don't want you to despair:

1. I can't believe you're still clueless, we're talking about a major European director.
2. Some filming locations: Yemen, Iran, Nepal, Ethiopia.
3. It's the sky again or rather the sky is somehow in it (the title) again:
