Ritz, Givenchy, Jaguar, Cartier, Paris and Champagne. This IS high-class romantic comedy. I like the way William Wyler quotes Alfred Hitchcock, I also wonder how a director can shoot a picture about a counterfeit sculpture surrounded by genuine masterpieces in a STUDIO. This is an interesting mise en abyme, isn't it? Highly recommended.
Some impossible things appear in this movie, but to distract the viewer they cut the exact moment of that part (like the key scene). None the less, Audrey Hepburn is fucking superb and gives to this movie the
Givenchy high class that he needs. Really enjoyable
Some details in the film aren't very logical, but Audrey Hepburn's acting is superb. And Peter O'Toole is very charming. An adorable comedy. But still, some illogical scenes and how naive the main female character is really bothering me.
i enjoyed this movie immensely. reminds me of Stanley Donen's "Charade," and i swear there is more than one actor who was in both movies (Audrey Hepburn being one of them, of course). i also think i'm in love with Peter O'Toole...
Loved it! Hepburn is truly adorable and O'Toole such a charmer. This is the type of film that will keep you smiling all along (apart from the bits that you might be laughing hard!). Definitely recommended!
I wouldn't even say this is top 10 in Wyler's amazing career, but its such a fun, breezy 60s comedy with O'Toole and Hepburn at the top of their games that one can't help but appreciate the film. Is the plot a bit absurd at times? Sure, but this is pure escapism cinema with a 60s panache that leaves you wanting more. 4 stars
Hepburn starred in more famous, iconic films, but never did she have such intoxicating chemistry with a leading man as she did with Peter O'Toole. There's a slyness and sizzle to their dalliance that makes Bogart and Peppard look like cold fish.
