5.0 out of 5 stars I didn't think that this movie could live up to the buzz. Thankfully, I was wrong., 16 May 2006
This review is from: Breakfast At Tiffany's [DVD] [1961] (DVD)
"Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961) is simply a classic, one of those films you just need to watch. I did that tonight. Why didn't I watch it before? I suppose I wasn't curious enough, and I didn't think that this movie could live up to the buzz. Thankfully, I was wrong.

The story takes place in New York, and is based on a novella written by Truman Capote, adapted to the screen by George Axelrod and directed by Blake Edwards. The cast is simply wonderful, and the wardrobe, stunning.

One of the main characters is the exquisitely beautiful Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn), an enchanting young woman with many secrets that lives off the gifts given to her by older men. Holly has a cat without a name, because "The way I see it I haven't got the right to give him one. We don't belong to each other. We just took up one day by the river. I don't want to own anything until I find a place where me and things go together. I'm not sure where that is but I know what it is like. It's like Tiffany's".

Holly's main purpose in life is to marry someone with lots of money, and finally be free. There is a small flaw in her plan, though: it doesn't take into account the fact that she might fall in love. However, that is just what might happen when she discovers a new neighbour, Paul Varjak (George Peppard), a struggling writer financed by an older woman, that happens to be very handsome and easy to talk to. When Holly and Paul meet, a friendship begins to develop between them. But can something else happen, when Paul has no money, and Holly is afraid of being in love and belonging to someone? Watch this film, and find out!

All in all, I think that "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is the kind of movie you will want to watch more than once. Again, a classic to be enjoyed :)
