Going back to brigiboo's post #13 ( ), I just saw L'Auberge Espagnole and it definitely made me want to go to Barcelona. I think the movie in itself can be named the official movie of those who love to travel, and hate the 9 to 5 life. Sound familiar anyone?
Not Movie, TV programs & Travel Magazines inspire me to go out.
It is a wonderful road movie full of sunshine. It is a trip from Berlin through Eastern Europe to Istanbul- bout life, love...
really check that film out! But it might be hard to find it outside of Europe.
It german, made by Fathi Akin, with Moritz Bleibtreu.
Enjoy it, Stephy
Swiss Family Robinson, Hatari, Charade, Grand Prix, Three Coins in The Fountain, Jules and Jim, Roman Holiday, The Quiet Man, Local Hero, The Last Emperor, Lawrence of Arabia, Ryan's Daughter, Passage to India, Cinema Paradiso, Mosquito Coast, Comfort and Joy,The Commitments, Whale Rider, Hannibal, City of Gold, just to name a few.
NATIONAL LAMPOON'S EUROPEAN VACATION!
No really though, I love "Jean de Florette" and the sequel "Manon des Sources" Beautiful films.
Also "The Talented Mr Ripley"
And you definatly can't beat all the Indiana Jones films for making you want to travel!
I have to go with mahmud and say TV shows do it for me. Especially the Amazing Race... I'm either painfully overjoyed by places I want to see, else juming up and down and telling people "I was there! I was there!"
BTW, I saw the commercial announcing the new season of The Amazing Race. Starts next week - woo hoo!
Recently, "The Motorcycle Diaries" has re-sparked my interest in South America travel. I'm sure there are tons more, but thats the first to mind. Though, I also recently saw "Machuca", this chilean film, and that helped too.
I'd agree with... i don't remember who... who said that "lost in translation" makes them want to travel to Japan.
