Flight-Delayed.co.uk has the perfect film recommendations so that you can escape, get inspired and dream the most fantastic of adventures, all while remaining in the comforts of your home….at least for the time being anyways.
The Motorcycle Diaries - South America
Ever dreamt of going to South America? Then you should surely watch The Motorcycle Diaries at least once. Follow in the footsteps of Ernesto “Che” Guevara, accompanied by his best friend and motorcycle, as he travels across Argentina, Chile, Peru and Colombia. Through their journey you get to discover the beauty and diversity of the South American landscapes.
The Beach - Thailand
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tilda Swinton, this film will make you long for the turquoise waters and golden sand of one of Thailand’s many islands. Possibly not the most unwinding movie, but a definite recommendation. If you’ve ever dreamt of escaping the daily grind of everyday life, this is the movie for you. Side note, the island on which the majority of shooting took place is Phi Phi island on the rather isolated island of Ko Phi Phi.
The Darjeeling Limited - India
Remember those holidays you took with your family when you were little? The inevitable bickering with your siblings that took place, included. Now you’re all grown and the idea might sound even less enticing, but this movie will make you think twice of possibly opting for a family trip instead. On the one hand The Darjeeling Limited is a feast for the eyes with the sumptuous landscapes of India; on the other hand, it reminds us that despite all of the eccentricities we might have with our family, we still love them.
Paris, Je T’Aime - Paris, of course
Sure we all know Paris as the city of love, but this has never been represented as brilliantly than in this film. Comprised out of 18 vignettes by different directors, this movie will make you fall in love with not only the city, but also just plain love. No matter what your exact tastes are, there’s sure to be at least one vignette that will make you go head over heels for Paris.
Into the Wild - Alaska
We could not finish this list without first mentioning Into the Wild. This film thoroughly encapsulates the desire to escape from all globetrotters: leaving everything to start a simpler life, waking up every day in a pure and immaculate environment, and disposing of unnecessary material attachments. Above all, this film reminds us that life is beautiful and a marvellous journey.
