Quotes

Kay King: Lauren, you are never to see that boy again. Ever! Or, at least until school is over. Then it won't matter anyway because we're leaving for the States.
Lauren King: The States?
Kay King: Your father has taken a job in god damn Houston. We'll be leaving at the end of the month. You better get used to the idea.

You'll want to see Venice (and the Bridge of Sighs)
26 July 2003 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Smashing romantic comedy-drama about two youngsters in love. A movie-loving French boy and the daughter of Americans working abroad meet and eventually run away from France to Venice to seal their love within the bonds of a legend--never suspecting the romantic story they've been told is a tall one, thought up by a wily pickpocket (Laurence Olivier, hammy but not overdoing it) who ends up acting as their guardian. Herky-jerky continuity and a too-heavy police interrogation sequence do not mar otherwise lovely and funny film with a beautiful score by Georges Delerue (which deservedly won an Oscar). Diane Lane, in her debut, is a wise little princess with understanding eyes and a husky, charming voice. *** from ****
