Storyline

Audrey Hepburn won her first Academy Award at the age of 24 and went on to become one of the world's greatest cultural icons: a once-in-a-generation beauty, and legendary star of Hollywood's Golden Age, whose style and pioneering collaboration with Hubert de Givenchy continues to inspire. But who was the real Audrey Hepburn? Malnourished as a child, abandoned by her father and growing up under Nazi occupation in Holland, Hepburn faced a life-long battle with the traumas of her past, which thwarted her dreams of becoming a ballet dancer, and cast a shadow over her personal life. Yet she found inner peace using her superstardom for good as a global ambassador for UNICEF and bringing her life full circle; first a victim of war, then a source of relief to millions.

Great documentary about a icon, humanitarian, and lovely woman
6 February 2021 | by namob-43673See all my reviews

Audrey Hepburn is one of the biggest movie stars of all time. She is one of the most beautiful women of all time. She was, and still is, a fashion icon. But Audrey was so much more than that and what made her into such a fantastic person was her life story and her big heart and that is what this documentary shows.

She lived an extraordinary life and were a lovely person that not only won oscars and spoke several languages, she was also a great humanitarian that helped UNICEF to actually care about children and the starving - something that organisation forgot lately. I found myself crying during that part of the documentary since it is so sad to think about that people are still starving in the world due to restrictions, socialism and other sicknesses. Children are still dying by the millions and today even more millions are dying because we in the west do not want to catch a Chinese cold.

So the story is a great one. The person Audrey was a great one. And this documentary show this in a great way.

With that said, there are also a couple of negatives. The music used is not always fitting. I would also like to have seen a bit more about her acting career, which is partly passed over. I can also feel it was a bit short. There is so much more to be said. Could have made a documentary for 2 hours only about her time in the Netherlands during WW2.

However this is still a great time spent and I highly recommend. I give this a 9/10 due to the emotional impact it had on me, but perhaps that is slightly too high.
