With this installment, my cinematic journey through places I will visit in Central Europe for 2012 is complete. Previously, I mentioned my favorite films set in Vienna. Today I am going to focus on Prague, Czech Republic. When I say ‘focus’ I may be exaggerating a bit; in fact, I have only come up with one film that I have seen (and really liked) which are set in Prague.
Casino Royale (2006)
The film that made me think twice about the 007 franchise. I was never a HUGE fan of Bond films, but I was more than greatly entertained by this film. From the start, the action was non-stop and kept me on the edge of my seat. Prague was just one of several locations where the film takes place.
Honorable Mention: Mission Impossible (1996) This receives an honorable mention mainly because if memory serves, I did enjoy the film at the time of its release, but over the course of the years, my interest had waned a bit. So I cannot technically count this as a ‘favorite.’
Can you think of any other films set in Prague? They do not have to be in the English language.
