Not a documentary!
14 March 2008 | by christina-263See all my reviews

I was able to see "The Art of Travel" during a private screening for the cast and crew at Fox Studios. I had no idea what this film would be about because the title suggests it might be a documentary. I was very surprised that it was actually a feature film and it hooked me within the first ten minutes! I could really relate to this movie because my family is from South America and I have traveled with them to many different countries. Sometimes as Americans we don't realize all the beauty that exists outside our country. I liked that this film sent a message to get out there and educate ourselves not by just watching the local news but by actually experiencing different cultures and places by traveling. Great movie!
