From Morocco to Los Angeles, the following destinations have become, literally or mentally, the set of romantic and classic movies that we have loved and give us a more tender and emotional self.
This list could not begin with anything less than Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. A novel love story set in Verona, Italy and brought to the cinema in 1996 in a modern version, by Baz Luhrmann, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes.
Although Atlanta looks very different today, it is still reminiscent of Margaret Mitchell’s “What the Wind Takes” from 1936. Even if one has not read the book or seen the movie, the name “Scarlett O’Hara” he is certainly familiar with it, through a romantic story set in 1861 in the American Civil War.
London is a place that has hosted many contemporary love stories, such as “A Night in Notting Hill” with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant, “Love Actually” with Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Emma Thompson and others, the “Diary of Bridget Jones” with Renee Zellweger, among others. It may not be considered the city of love in the world, but it has a wonderful romantic setting, while even the lifestyle inspires romance: afternoon tea, walks in the park, museum appointments, walk in the Thames, pub dates …
New York, USA
The big city of the United States, with its Manhattan lights, Central Park and picturesque neighborhoods, is definitely an ideal backdrop for a love story. From “Barefoot in the Park” with Robert Redford and Jane Fonda, to “When Harry Met Sally” with Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan, and “Ghost” with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore, Like the famous HBO series “Sex and the City”, New York does not stop starring in love stories.
The famous film “Casablanca” with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman was released in 1942 in the middle of World War II and tells the story of a love triangle. Will he save the world or will he keep the girl? A difficult dilemma beautifully captured in exotic Morocco and in a classic black and white film.
Los Angeles, USA
The City of Angels is certainly not so romantic at first sight, however movies like “A star is born”, “La La Land”, “Pretty Woman”, “The Artist” manage to make it.
