This delicately handled love story was legendary director David Lean's first colour film and his own personal favourite. Katherine Hepburn shines in the leading role and both director and star were nominated for Oscars.
American spinster Jane Hudson has finally saved enough to take the trip of a lifetime and she hopes Venice will bring a spark of magic into her life. Overwhelmed by the beauty of her surroundings her holiday becomes all the more special when she encounters a charming antiques dealer and is soon swept of her of her feet. Could this be the romance she has waited her whole life for?

This movie transports you to Venice
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 07/11/2009 15:22:46
What a beautiful movie that has stood the test of time - my mother first saw it in the cinema when released and loved it - I took her to Venice when she was 69 and she felt as I do that you feel Venice in the movie the echoing streets as you walk back from San Marco in the early hours of the morning the busy Grand Canal the quiet waterways away from the tourist spots - if you love Venice this film will transport you there - ok for the younger ones the romance is a little old fashioned but having experienced Italian men at their most romantic quite honestly it isn't that far fetched even in this day and age! A beautiful film that I could and have watched many times and Miss Hepburn isn't even one of my favourite actresses!

If you are in love with Venice this is your movie.
It's full of lovely views of this wonderfull watercity, the (film) romance is a free extra bonus. watch it and feel the thrill of taking the train together with Mrs. Hepburn and arriving in Venice. The next thing you will do is buy a ticket to Venice.
