Review by anonymous (posted on 9-Jan-2007)
I was disappointed in this movie despite the presence of Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn. She was lovely, but I found the musical numbers forgettable and the sets often dreary. One dance number was done in the dark and unimaginatively lit. I've never seen Audrey in any movie that she wasn't fantastic in so if you love her, see this to watch her. Astaire's dancing is always awesome. I wanted to love this film, but I did not.
Do you know something we don't?
