Nicole's father, a legendary art collector, lends his prized Cellini Venus to a prestigious Paris museum. Unfortunately, the Venus was *not* sculpted by Cellini but by Nicole's grandfather. (Her father is a forger as well, but his specialty is paintings.) Before tests can be done which would prove the Venus a fake, Nicole enlists the services of "society burglar" Simon Demott to steal the million dollar statue. Written by
Superb mix of comedy, farce, charm, Audrey and O'Toole.
This film is a superb mix of farce, comedy, suspense and charm.
About he last one, lots of charm, arranged by Givenchy gowns and Audrey Hepburn herself. With good romantic and ironic dialogs and also surprisingly very good comedian Peter O'Toole all the time. All the time he pretends a serious role, but he is the highest responsible for the farce and the comedy, since the shot she hit him. Together with Hugh Griffith, these three hold the film giving to spectator the best of his time. >From the overture to the end, this film is an unique piece of good taste and the smoked love story is subtly conducted by William Wyler in the way of The Big Country - what proved that a nice love story can be told without the hot appeal of modern movies.
