All Aboard the Orient Express

Sirkeci

Our chat with Alexandra Ivanoff got Istanbul on our minds today. So we picked up Museyon’s Film+Travel guide to Europe for a little inspiration. Now we’re headed back to the Turkish capital in search of a little mystery — ‘Murder on the Orient Express‘ style.     Sidney Lumet’s 1974 take on Agatha Christie’s thriller places Sean Connery onboard the luxurious ...

A Roman (Polanski) Holiday

RomanPolanskiRollingStone

Roman Polanski may not be going anywhere for a while, now that (allegedly?) raping a 13-year-old has finally caught up with him and all. He may be holed up in a Swiss jail, but his films provide a trip around the world. Even after his exile from the United States in 1977, the director continued to shoot on location throughout Europe ... Read More »

It’s a Mod, Mod World

S&M Cafe 4-6 Essex Rd. Islington, London

You know we love music and you know we love movies, so it should come as no surprise that ‘Quadrophenia‘ is one of our all-time favorites. The 1979 film is based on The Who’s 1973 rock opera album of the same name. It’s the story of Jimmy, a young Londoner with a dead-end job who finds release in the sharp ... Read More »

‘Angels’ in Italy

Angels_and_demons

Despite the success of ‘The Da Vinci Code,’ and maybe in part because of it, this summer’s smash hit ‘Angels and Demons‘ didn’t have an easy ride to the cineplex. The 2008 Screen Actors Guild strike meant on-location filming was limited to a 3-week Roman blitz. Not only that, but the Pope’s people, unhappy with ‘Da Vinci,’ put the kibosh ... Read More »

Arigato, Austria!

The main character from Japan’s long-running ‘Otoko was tsurai yo‘ (It’s Tough Being a Man) series, is set to get a park named after him — in Vienna, Austria, of all places. Why the love? Turns out Tora-san, the bumbling and love-struck star of the films 48 installments is a beloved character in the European capital, in part because of ... Read More »

Frequent Flyer: James Bond

GoldenEye

When it comes to going on location, few films do it with as much panache and style as the James Bond series. ‘GoldenEye,’ the 17th Bond installment, features an in-his-prime Pierce Brosnan, as 007 in a case that sends him around the globe. The first of the Bond films to be made after the Cold War,  ’GoldenEye’ heads back to the U.S.S.R., stopping ... Read More »

Mamma Mia!’s Aegean Escape

Skopelos, Greece

It’s one of the most popular movies of all time. In fact, since it hit theaters last summer, ‘Mamma Mia‘ has become the highest-grossing musical ever, and Britain’s all-time number one film. The ABBA-themed musical features the likes of Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and newcomer Amanda Seyfried, but the real stars of the film are the beautiful islands ... Read More »

Paris a la Amélie

Moulin Rouge

‘Amélie‘ is one of those movies we love here at Museyon — sweet, iconic and visually stunning. We also love the picture it paints of gay ol’ Paris. Of all the Gallic cities, none is more stereotypically French than Paris, writes Julien Sévéon in Film + Travel, which is why it’s long been a favorite of tourists and filmmakers alike. ...
