A movie watched, or a book read in a particular location, can forever remain associated with that location. I haven't found this to apply when the location is home, work or business but only with a vacation destination. It also works only for the first viewing; repeats don't seem to count.
I can clearly recall watching the movie, Chocolat, with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp in San Juan, Costa Rica. For me, the city wasn't particularly attractive; perhaps it has changed in the past ten years. We were staying in a two star hotel that was frankly a bit of a disappointment, on the first day of a GAP tour. The walls were painted a disappointing green and the television was an antique vintage.
But the film, set in a French village, was charming and evocative and along with three members of my family we were starting a vacation together. Now whenever I come across the film on a cable network, I have a momentary reverie. It's a little like an almost forgotten scent or fragrance that recalls someone or something you thought you had forgotten. I suppose the title doesn't hurt, either.
