This is a film that I admire more with each viewing, and without doubt deserves its cult status. It is true that the rather uneasy mix between whimsical comedy and the late 60's Euro-chic feel of the picture can seem, at times, a bit dated; but Stanley Donen's interpretation of the ups and downs and complexities of a modern marriage are spot on. Audrey Hepburn plays the charming Joanna who enjoys the luxuries that come with being a successful architect's wife, yet is not prepared to put up with the boredom of having a workaholic husband. Albert Finney plays the bluff, arrogant and impossible husband she ends up with- who has at the same time, considerable charm of a type which makes their sudden marriage seem entirely plausible. A terrific score by Mancini, locations on the Cote d'Azur- and that dream machine of all time- the Mercedes Pagoda Top Convertible remind us all of those halycon holidays in the South of France that we may have had in the past, or would have liked to have had. Not to mention a tiny appearance by a young Jacqueline Bisset which led to her role in Truffaut's Day for Night. Above all, Fredric Raphael's sophisticated and witty screenplay underlines the fact that style and glamour in themselves remain superficial and that with all the will in the world, marriage ain't easy. Highly recommended.
