Lesli: I LOVED "About a Boy" too! How about "The Red Balloon" and "the Red Shoes". Ronin was great. "Gosford Park", had to see it twice, to pick up the dialogue better. "The Bourne Identity" was good too for scenary. Forget Paris and the movie(I can't recall the name"with Kevin Kline and Meg Ryan...I loved when she was walking down a village in Southern France, saying "beautiful, just beautiful"..... so true. ahhh travel, I love it!

My favorite movie is The Godfather, am a confirmed fanatic for the movie and is the reason I went to live in Italy for three years when I was in the Navy. The place I worked at was directly next to the Guardia di Finanzia building (Italian Coast Guard). Anyway, there was going to be a party there later in the day and the band set up to practice. Imagine to my surprise when the wedding theme to The Godfather began wafting out from the windows. I perked my head up suddenly, looked out amongst the Neopolitan hills and sighed happily. It doesn't get any better than that for me.

Anything by Masterpiece Theatre/BBC .. for an American film I thoroughly enjoyed Emma with Gwyneth Paltow .. makes me want to move to the English/Scottish countryside and relive the 19th century!

INDISCREET 1958, Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman---shot in London. When I first traveled there, I took that stroll around town after dark, just as Grant and Bergman had, though without the chauffeur driven Rolls moving slowly behind me. London is my favorite city and when I miss it, it's INDISCREET that I watch. The last time I returned from London, I watched it the evening I came home. Going there enhanced the response I initially had to the film.

Back in the '60's there was a B movie with Troy Donahue and Suzanne Pleschette. Can't remember the title for sure - "Rome Adventure" I think. However, I do still remember how it made me want to travel to Italy!
Also, "Chocolat" is a good one.

I remembered the name of the movie....French Kiss! Also "Sliding doors" with Gwyneth Paltrow. Also any Merchant/Ivory production is lucious with scenary and location.

in the movie, "Funny Face" with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire--Does anyone know where that church is located where they shot the wedding scene?

It looks magical!

This is fun! Makes me want to see some of these movies that I haven't seen in years. How about "Notting Hill" - makes me want to go to London. Also, when I was a teenager, the movie "If It's Tuesday This Must Be Belgium" made me determine to NEVER go on a tour.

Hi,
For you Southern France lovers, four Pagnol movies:
La Gloire de mon Pere (My Father's glory)
Le Chateau de ma mere (My Mother's Chateau)
Nice story of family on the early 1900's, in Provence, watch them in order!


And, 2 more, to watch in order:
Jean de Florette
Manon des Sources

Rugged Provence scenery

A second for "Local Hero" specially because the 'hero' is named MacIntyre!

Also, "Passage to India".

"Local Hero" is one of my all-time favorite movies. Not only is it funny, charming, and whimsical, but it also has Scottish accents, picturesque seaside villages, the great Burt Lancaster, and a gorgeous soundtrack (his first of many) by Mark Knopfler. If I ever return to Scotland, I'd love to visit one of the two or three seaside villages used for locations.

Whit Stillman's drama/comedy "Barcelona" (the second in his trilogy, after "Metropolitan" and before "The Last Days of Disco") made me want to visit Barcelona...and I did.

Didn't anyone see To Catch a Thief.

French Kiss is one of my favorites as Meg Ryan and Kevin Klien could not have been better cast. I want to own and live at that vineyard in the final scene.

A Room With a View - Florence. I saw this movie in high school and it was the reason I made Italy my first overseas trip.

Wings of the Dove - Venice.
