"In Bruges" the movies

Should I watch it before my trip to Bruges or should I leave it for later?

Please advise.

It's a good film wether or not you're a fan of the city.

If you watch before you go you will enjoy putting the sites you are seeing to the film.

If you watch it afterwards you will enjoy putting the sites you have seen to the film.

If you do watch it before you go, do note that the continuity of the scenes does not match the actual geography of the city.

U should see it before.

This way u'll find out more things about the stuff u will see in Burges and decide wether it's worth it or not.

I have not to been to Bruges yet, i will on 28 may and i am very excited and i am happy i have seen the moovie before; makes me want much more to see Bruges.

I love english humor.

Even if moovie it's a kind of a drama and the final leaves you questioning about things i really enjoyed it, and i am a person who does not laugh very easy.

In fact, i think i will see it again before i go to Bruges.

The dog in the movie belongs to the wonderful Carolyn at Cote Canal B&B. See the movie after you go.

We just watched it for the 2nd time and are heading to Bruges in May. It is thrilling to see all the sights we will be seeing in person in a month. The access they had is incredible.

It made us want to go to the Groeninge Museum to see the Hieronymus Bosch painting, which we hadn't necessarily planned on doing.

There are a couple of really nice features on the dvd about places to see in Bruges. I'd definitely recommend seeing it before to build anticipation.
