Oscar contender filmed in Kardamili - Before Midnight

The movie 'Before Midnight' has now been scheduled for release in May 2013 by Sony Classics. Initial reviews from Sundance Festival very positive, with mention of potential Oscar nominations !

The trailer has recently become available and can be viewed on the Imdb website - just click Trailers (Drama).

I think I recognise the wee fountain in the square, the pier, Meropi Island, and Dioskouri Taverna on the hillside in the last frame.

Anyone else recognise any locations ?

Isn't it fabulous ?! We were watching some night scenes being shot, centred on a rather impressive looking boat - a lot of our guests were peering over their sea front balconies to get a look - don't think any of them are in shot though!

I believe it is released in about 5 weeks time. Can't wait to see it ! I would imagine it will be a great advertisement for the village and the surrounding area.

Yes, was disappointed to see that it's later than first rumoured. Have you seen the trailer Sue ? Recognise much of the village ?

Any idea what bits ? Do you recognise any locations from the trailer ?

It's got to be the best ever advert for the whole area, and with Ryanair and Easyjet going into Kalamata, the future of responsible tourism looks good !

The Easyjet, Gatwick/Kalamata route this year is certainly good news, but RyanAir only connect Kalamata with Milan.

Ryanair apparently adding Rome and Brussels to their Kalamata operation. Now if only they would add Edinburgh...........
