We all dream of traveling to Paris, especially ladies :). It is one of the few cities in the world where you can never get bored. No matter how much you explore, there will always be something new to discover or a place where you will feel a unique atmosphere. For me, that place is Versailles.
Paris, je t'aime brings together 18 love stories, each filmed in a different neighborhood in Paris, representing a monogram of the city and its inhabitants. The film had 20 directors who contributed to its realization, they created emblematic characters, with romanticized or dramatic life stories, which we could find every day.

3. James Bond series
James Bond, codenamed 007, is a character in Ian Fleming's novels and James Bond film series. The character in the novels was modeled after agents from the British counterintelligence service MI5 and MI6, soldiers in commando troops and probably his mundane character is autobiographical.
In his novels, Ian Fleming does not set an exact date of birth. His birthplace is supposed to be in Switzerland. Bond was married, albeit for a short time, and was known for his many adventures with members of the opposite sex, called the "Bond girls."
Screenings of novels starring Agent 007 have become box office hits around the world. A number of 6 actors played him in the 24 feature film screenings: Sean Connery (1962–1967; 1971; 1983), George Lazenby (1969), Roger Moore (1973–1985), Timothy Dalton (1987–1989), Pierce Brosnan (1995–2002) and Daniel Craig (2006 – present).
If you want to walk around the world and at the same time take action against the bad guys, James Bond will surely fulfill all these desires.
2. Eat, Pray, Love (Eat, Pray Love)

It is a romantic story, sad and full of lessons. The beautiful images from the 3 locations awaken our desire to travel and discover new places. The movie can be watched on Netflix.

Vicky is engaged to a man who gives her stability and affection. Cristina has other expectations from love and considers that suffering is an indispensable component of the condition and thus, accepts it as such.

Fresh out of a divorce that shook the art world in Barcelona, he attracts the two in a series of unconventional romantic adventures.
