Overacted and overblown, pic will underwhelm commercially, with theatrical perhaps limited to friends and family.

...director Thomas Whelan embraces the wanderlust spirit in this enjoyable if uneven film, whose qualities often reflect the television background of most of its cast.

The use of such locales as Bolivia, Nicaragua, Panama and Peru adds to the exotic flavor of the film.

Part The Graduate, part Fitzcarraldo, The Art of Travel is a tribute to living on the road less traveled. Filmed entirely on location, it offers a more rounded portrayal of culture outside of the standard Hollywood clichés

It's a sturdy directorial job for a difficult movie; one that wants to spread the idea of travel as the ultimate cotton swab of life, but also engages in good times to keep the less spiritually open audience members awake.

Travel is an ambitious, involving and extensive travelogue that challenges the imagination. [A] feasible fable that allows one to remain contemplative and connected

Audience Reviews for The Art Of Travel

I had never heard of this movie, and to be honest it sounded pretty formulaic and cheesy, but I got so much more than I expected. This really made me think, and there's so much beauty and meaning behind it. This was a very pleasant surprise.

This is a great movie! I was so entertained. I watched the Q & A and the filmmakers seemed really passionate about the way it was made and to go out and travel the world.

Hmm.....I put it on as something to fall asleep to, and it was so bad I couldn't sleep through it. For a movie that claims to hate quotes, it sure uses lots of lame ones to tell the story.
