Movie Review by Zara
March 16th, 2007

Sweet little Audrey Hepburn getting terrorized?

I decided to watch this movie in an effort to look back into some older movies of the recent older Oscar winners. This one contains a young Alan Arkin in a role that he is clearly having a lot of fun with.

One of my biggest problems with older movies is that they were shot so melodramaticly, without a hint of trying to make it the least realistic. I guess that's what audiences at the time wanted. Instead of a woman cowering in fear, eyes dilated and sweat on her brow they wanted an actress who would wail and throw her forearm across her forehead.

I ended up liking this movie if only for Alan Arkin and the fact that he was brave enough to take on a role that other actors wouldn't touch for fear of being the menace to America's sweetheart. It has a couple of tense moments and if you can look past the gaping plot holes you might actually enjoy yourself watching it. I know that I didn't consider it a huge waste of time.

I actually really liked this movie.
I loved both Audrey and Alan, but I do agree with you on the melodramatic bit.
It's what made 50's and 60's movies I guess.
