#2 – The Talented Mr Ripley
Starring Matt Damon, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett and Philip Seymour Hoffman, this movie serves us plenty of Hollywood wattage in visually stunning locations all over Italy.
Apart from the beginning scenes filmed in New York City, the movie was shot entirely on location in Italy (including Positano and the various villages on the islands of Ischia and Procida, near Naples.)
But if you tire of seeing dazzling crystal blue waters and sunshine after a while, there are plenty of famous urban locations on offer, such as the Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps and Piazza di Spagna in Rome, and the Caffè Florian in the Piazza San Marco, Venice.
Also noted for it’s amazing style references, this is a sexy movie with a dark undercurrent.
