Are you a fan of Merchant Ivory films? Art house films like "Howard's End," "Remains of the Day," and "A Room With A View" are award-winning masterpieces, but more than anything, they're love affairs with the locations themselves.

Ismail Merchant is the director of the new film "The Mystic Masseur," which is set in Trinidad in the West Indies.

Ismail was in Los Angeles a few weeks ago, and as a huge fan of his work, it was a great opportunity for me to sit down and talk with him on how crucial it is for him to capture the essence of place in his films.
