Not as bad as they say
9 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I honestly went into this movie thinking it would be god awful like the critics said. I guess I'm prejudice when it comes to Katharine Hepburn.

You might say that the way Waterloo Bridge photographed Vivien Leigh is similar to how Hepburn is photographed in Break of Hearts.

Her face and her eyes are aglow in nearly every scene. I don't think she was over acting at all like some have said.

Boyer does a decent job as the famous composer Franz Roberti.

It really isn't a variation of "A Star is Born" like one reviewer has said.

Sure the plot's basically mush, but I still enjoyed seeing Hepburn at the height of her youth.

It's a good film for Hepburn fans at least.
