I think it was called French Postcards… but it was more than 10 years ago wasn’t it? I think Debra Winger was in it.

Is this it? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079176/

Just Married was the worst movie I’ve ever seen about Europe. Bad acting, nauseating script, Brittany Murphy destroys it. Eurotrip isn’t much better, but humor has a tad more wit and irony and the actors aren’t quite so bad.

I agree with Hope about Just Married. What a grating piece of shit and when will Ashton’s 15 minutes be over with? Does this obnoxious idiot ever take a five-minute break from making movies?

However, I was in stitches watching Eurotrip. Hysterically funny, and with plenty of nudity (as all raunchy teen sex comedies should). The film’s depictions of Europe were very politically incorrect…but then again, they deliberately went with the most obvious stereotypes (hash brownies in Amsterdam, for example) and some below-the-belt zingers that worked.

I just saw Eurotrip…it was terrible for the most part. The only good thing was that "Scotty" song…the german truckdriver, the guys on te nude beach chasing the "girl" like zombies, the bratislava thing was a little funny..and the italian on the train. The story was awful….his e-mail was blocked by that girl in Berlin…so he had to fly to her? Why not just bloody use a different e-mail address..

Yeah..I only thought about 15 minutes of it was funny. The rest was crap.

I mean the whole begining sucked. Totally formulaic and lacking character.

They go to Europe. None of the English stuff was funny. The Paris parts were absolutely unfunny i.e. the robot. All the interactions between the main characters blew chunks. Amsterdam was unfunny. I mean that sex place..and camera shop bj/robbery thing was boring as hell..

Berlin was boring. Rome was boring.

The movie just had no soul…and even other good "ridiculous" movies IMO had soul…this one had none…

But thats just my opinion..

Thanks to everyone who reccommended "L’Auberge Espagnole."

I just saw it…and it’s quite a charming little slice of life film. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I look forward to seeing how the sequel is handled.

The outtakes at the end were funny. Matt Damon’s "Scotty Doesn’t Know" was funny. That was enough to give it a bit of soul, but yeah you can easily visualize the men in suits around the table talking about what a moneymaker this film could be.

To Be And To Have
French documentary of a year in a one-room schoolhouse in the Auvergne region. Slow but poetic and riveting. Beautiful landscapes. To me it is a must-see movie for anyone involved in education.

Fellini’s Amarcord
Growing up in Rimini (Fellini’s personal experiences) during Mussolini’s domination. Fantastic visual sequences.

Local Hero
Texas oil firm sends a guy out to buy a Scottish village. It is sort of a fish-out-of-water tale, but much more than that.
Quirky, funny characters and gorgeous seaside views.

What’s the deal with "Globe Trekker"? They seem to have different names even though it’s the same show. During the late 90’s, the show was called "Lonely Planet". It’s quite easy to see why they changed their name considering that the show has no ties with the travel book. In Canada (OLN), it’s called &quotilot Guides" while in the US (PBS), it’s called "Globe Trekker". Nevertheless, it’s one of my favorite shows.

I loved Etre et avoir (why do you people always have the English titled? Lola Rent was called Run Lola Run on here too), dont like the fact that they refused to give the teacher in the documentary any money though.

Sorry. It’s just that "we people" are using an English-speaking board.

The movie profited a heady 2 million euros. After the movie became known, Lopez turned down the moviemaker’s offer of 37,500 euros and sued the film-makers for 250,000 euros (and lost). There was never an agreement that Lopez was supposed to get any money afterwards.
It was understood that this film was a documentary.
There were no paid actors.
If remuneration was so important to Lopez, why didn’t he try to get it in writing beforehand?

French newspapers agreed, reporting the initial claim beneath the headline: "To be and to have: the teacher would rather have."

I just saw Amelie as well…based on some of your reccomendations. It was so popular…but I never got around to watching it until now. I liked it quite a bit…that Audrey Tautou is awesome…after seeing her fairly briefly in L’Auberge Espagnol…I was even more inclined to see Amelie…she can act..and what a face! She’s really beautiful. Whereas before I was indifferent to her being cast as Sophie in The Da Vinci Code…now shes going to be the part I nearly look forward to the most..solid casting choice there by Opie..

Ahmmm…. Cinema Paradiso, Amelie, this is a curious one, but Billy Elliot makes me wanna go back to the UK, although not much is shown in the movie, but it happens… And Road to Perdition gives me the tickles to go to Chicago.

hey user_name – I think Tatou’s best role is in "A Very Long Engagement", which came out last year, by the same director as Amelie. Check it out – the cinematography is fantastic as well. It’s set in France during WWI.

I tried to get A Very Long Engagement the other day…but they said the US DVD realease was July 12th…I’ll get it then…I ended up getting an Italian film called "The Sons Room" …its not like the movie is about locales and scenery…but you definitely get some..and the movie is good.

Before Sunrise is absolute garbage.

While the girl is certainly worth chatting up and pulling, Ethan Hawke is obnoxious, pretentious and insipid.

I thought "Annoying Seppo on a Train" was a better title than that one.

Teh girl and I are looking foward to mocking the sequel however.

For movies that make me want to go places, Captain Ron makesme want to sail, Ong Bak makes me want to get pissed and hop in a tuk tuk, everything fromHK makes me want to go there!

Oh, and Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring makes me want to go back to Korea and A World Without Thieves, China.

Old movies that make me want to go to France:
Diabolique (1955)
Les 400 Coups(1959)
La Grande Illusion (1938)
Touchez Pas au Grisbi (1954)
Contempt (1963)
Pepe le Moko (1936)(well, more Morocco than France)

As much as I like l’Auberge Espagnole, I’m a little skeptical about the sequel…here’s the website (in French) http://www.marsfilms.com/site/poupeesrusses/

Wow, newsflash: Eurotrip was not meant to have a formulated plot, smart dialouge, or interesting character interactions. It was meant to be full of potty humor.

Other than that:

The Transporter (French Riviera)
The Italian Job (Northern Italy)
Ocean’s 12 (Northern Italy, Amsterdam)
Basically every WWII movie ever made (Normandy)
After The Sunset (The Bahamas)
The Last Samurai (rural Japan)
Ocean’s 11 (Las Vegas)

For those of you who want to go to Nice: To Catch a Thief, with Cary Grant and Grace Kelly (who as Princess Grace of Monaco, later died whil driving on the same roads shown in the movie). Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, and great scenery around the Riviera.

Username, I’m glad you liked L’Auberge Espagnole!! I can’t rave enough about that movie. I think that, for anyone who has lived/studied in Europe as a young adult (or -if you’re from Europe, anyone who has lived/studied in a country other than their own) this movie really hits a soft spot. As you watch the movie, you re-live your own experiences and that’s why the movie is so appealing to many of us. I’ve read harsh criticisms of the movie online, but all these criticisms are from people who have never left North America and who interpret the movie as a European version of the Real World. That’s not what it was meant to be. It’s nice to hear from people who liked the movie.

I really need to see L’Auberge Espagnole[/i. Having studied abroad I think I would really get a kick out of it.

The movies I would say are Under the Tuscan Sun and [i]Amelie….

Great thread, combines two of my favorites =)

most of these movies are great heres a couple more:

1. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants – has amazing shots of Greece!
2. An American in Paris

I think i’m going to have to watch Mission Impossible again i don’t really remember the locations.

Some of you must have seen Band of Brothers.
Although it was mostly shot in England, there are some wonderful recreations of Dutch and German towns. Its amazing what they can do with stage and props these days.

I’d suggest earplugs if the sound of people laughing in hysterical fits bothers you.

Not sure if it has been mentioned before, but The Count of Monte Cristo. I love that movie and it makes me want to visit Marsielle (sp?) and the Chateau d’If Prison.
