I wish someday i would go to Paris to meet someone special like what happened in the movie "Before Sunrise" (1994) and promise to return after 10 years that we would meet again as shown in "Before Sunsets" (2004).

How about yours?

Bon voyage.

The beach probably did it for a lot of people!

Can't really think of a movie that inspires me, but every time I watch a documentary about some far away country I just want to pick up and go.... !

Sometimes while watching a movie the cinematography will make me want to visit a place...even if it is just a glimpse...Didn't the travel industry in NZ jump after the release of the Lord of the Rings was released? I also read that safaris in Africa jumped after White hunter hit movie screens....

I agree on that! French Kiss, You've got Mail and Sleepless in Seatle by Meg Ryan; Don't Cry for me Argentina; even The Sound of Music; Sunshine under Tuscany (i am sure I had wrongly typed this title, anyone to correct me?); Harry Potter - Alnwick Castle, right? The Spanish Apartment (L'Auberge Espagnol); in Asian, the very famous Korean Drama "Winter Sonata" has boost up their tourism industry and many many more... International movies, Hollywood's, Bollywood's ...

But I doubt, are those places really that enchanting?

This is the power of media!!!

A German Specialist says this: A fact could be born by repeating the same lie for 7000 times; 70 times are enough to uphold a lie, which I think.

We would love to be Robin Williams in "Club Paradise" - without the being blown out of a highrise and the revolution parts. Just having the resort on the beach part (and Peter O'Toole popping in for a drink now and again). Wouldn't mind having Micheal Caine's part as Governor of Cascara in "Water" either. But Cascara doesn't have any beaches, just very rocky shoreline. Could be a problem...

We look in the local papers for resorts/dive operations for sale when we travel. Never hurts to dream...

I've got to watch "Before Sunset", bought it few weeks ago. "Before Sunrise" is romantic's wet dream, and that about sums it up. ;)

"Lost In Translation" impressed me aswell.

Melesmeles,

I have 2 films in my hard disks - wet dream of before Sunrise?

MelesMeles: i wonder how could the actors make it a success; even in before sunset, they even spoke on their own words naturally...splendid...and a thing is... the time seems to flow like the real world...very realistic tho. A great script i would say that, do you , MelesMeles? Not easy to remember all those long-ever conversation? The actors must have been very dedicated and diligent!

<a big applause to them>
