Trivia

The place where the young couple wanted to seal their union with a sunset kiss was under Venice's Bridge of Sighs. This was based on a legend which said that "lovers who kiss beneath the Bridge of Sighs in Venice, at sunset as the bells of Campanile toll, will love each other forever". See more »

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 American daughter of a movie actress 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 ****
