Though the clips and interviews with these prominent people are rare and genuine, the quality of the sound and picture fall by the way side. For this, one star was taken off of my rating, but other than that, great buy.
Recommended to: Audrey Hepburn fans and Gregory Peck fans.
Hepburn starred in some of the great Hollywood romances ("Sabrina", "Funny Face", "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and her Academy Award-winning triumph, "Roman Holiday"); but the woman behind the screen was just as fascinating. Enduring the horrific German occupation of Holland during WW2, Hepburn and her mother moved to London after the liberation, where Audrey learned that too much precious time had been lost, and she'd never fulfil her dream to become a classical ballet dancer.
Acting really just fell into her lap. Minor roles in several British films (including "The Lavender Hill Mob") led to director William Wyler plucking her almost from out of the blue to co-star opposite Gregory Peck in "Roman Holiday". Almost at the same time, she enjoyed two hits on the Broadway stage ("Gigi", "Ondine", the latter earning Hepburn a Tony Award). The rest, as they say, is history. In retrospect it seems incredible that she even made it at all! She wasn't Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell, Sophia Loren or Elizabeth Taylor. But she was magic all the same. And audiences adored her.
This documentary is filled with clips from many of her fondly-regarded hits (and a few rarities) plus insights from those who knew Hepburn best (friend Connie Wald, son Sean Ferrer, director Stanley Donen and former husband Mel Ferrer chief among them). A "loverly" reminder of what true movie magic is all about...and why we're all still head-over-heels in love with Audrey Hepburn.Read more ›
Interviews with Audrey herself underscore what a humble and eloquent speaker she was. The documentary clips of her kissing the hands of starving children and their mothers in a Sudanese refugee camp are particularly haunting and heartbreaking.
May Audrey's selfless work encourage all of us to care about--and for--the desperate and destitute, wherever they may be.
This documentary is filled with interviews of her co-stars, directors, friends and family that clearly show her Joie de vivre. I chose this French phrase that means cheerful enjoyment of life; an exultation of spirit, because that is what clearly come through in this show. It is amazing to see how she has this natural grace, even in the small parts she played in the few movies she made prior to "Holiday in Rome". It never left her either. One of her director's states, "It was like she was kissed on the cheek by God when born". Amazing.
It also reveals the non-movie star side of her. Her two marriages and a long partnership that lasted to the end of her life. Mel Ferrer, her first husband speaks of her with love for her still in his voice and her final partner, Robert Wolders, also talks of their time together and with her children. Although, her second husband, Andrea Dotti, who was living while this show was made, doesn't make an appearance here, a Google search of him will explain why.
Roger Moore, who is the host, obviously has great affection for her and her memory. Consequently, he leads us through the life of this beautiful, funny, charming and most of all, loving person.
I believe this is a must see for all movie enthusiasts or anybody else that knows and understands the meaning of LOVE.
