Roman Holiday & When In Rome

In a few weeks a friend and I are going to Rome! We're so excited to see this famous old city. To prepare ourselves and mostly to have some fun, we had a little movie night yesterday. We watched two movies that were filmed in Rome.

First.. Roman Holiday.

Roman Holiday is a 1953 movie still completely in black and white with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. 118 minutes of old music, an amazing sense of style and the lovely manners that unfortunately seem to have disappeared these days. It's about a princess that escapes from the ambassade in Rome and meets a journalist. Together they have their own little holiday in Rome. It was really fun to watch this and I wanted to give you a little impression. If you like this kind of things, you should definitely watch this one! 

And second... When In Rome.
After Roman Holiday we wanted to see some colour. The world isn't black and white anymore. Nor is Rome. When in Rome is a 2010 romantic comedy with Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel. When Beth goes to her sister's wedding in Rome, she ends up drunk in the 'fountain of love'. She picks up four coins that people threw in the fountain, which turns out to be not as innocent as she thought. Four men are now desperately in love with her and follow her everywhere. And of course, she finds her own love in the end. It's such an amazing movie! We laught till we had tears in our eyes! And that is a good thing.

Anyway, Both movies are really worth watching. 

Do you have any movie suggestions? I would love it if you'd suggest a few have-to-watch-movies in the comment section!

  1. maybe you could watch When in Rome with the Olsen Twins. It's hard to find on the internet but I've found one like a month ago. The only bad thing was that there were subtitles in, I don't know, Swedish?
    Have fun!
