Audrey Hepburn steals the show in this film, but the film as a whole is slightly overrated. It is a good movie, but the pedestal it is on as an all-time great is inaccurate. The writing is good and most of the acting is fine. However, with it's runtime of 115 minutes, it runs too long. It is an incredibly slow movie, and then the third act seems very crammed. There are certain character decisions and thinking that feel unrealistic as well. The cinematography is fine, and the colors shine bright throughout the film. Some moments are filled with charm and some are quite funny, but other parts seem to drag and have a flat, stale tone. It is heart touching at times and can be moving. I found myself engaged and for the most part, entertained. The very ending sequence may be a movie cliche, but it truly is moving. Director Blake Edwards does a very good job directing. Writer George Axelrod did a fine job of writing a strong dialogue between characters, however, some of the dialogue feels more like filler conversations rather than anything important. This is a classic good film. Overall, I give this movie a 7/10.
