Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in Europe, completely landlocked in Western Europe covering just over 2,500 square miles.  The country has a highly developed economy, with the world's highest GDP according to the IMF, and. . . is also the site of many films.   Luxembourg steps in frequently for Venice scenery in the classic movie "The Merchant of Venice," and believe it or not using scenery alternative to the actual location is a common practice in movies.  Among other great movies filmed in Luxembour are several horror films like "An American Warewolf in Paris" and "Shadow of a Vampire."  But none of these movies are the inspiration behind film critic Robin Hollabird's visit to the small country.  This week, Robin talks about her upcoming trip to Luxembour and the mark the country has made in movies.
