I don't ordinarily post comments, but this film, which I saw on DVD, touched me deeply and I wanted to share my thoughts. Its haunting melody and superb acting literally brought me to the verge of tears. Audrey Hepburn never looked so fetching. Mancini's soundtrack beautifully complements the film's bittersweet story and continues to reverberate in my mind. I was enraptured from start to finish. This is a true classic, as meaningful today as it was when it first appeared. One of the best, most memorable, and moving films I have ever seen. The director knows how to tug at one's heartstrings. This is a movie to be cherished. Share it with the one you love.
