Breakfast At Tiffany’s (1961) Review

Audrey Hepburn plays that daring, darling Holly Golightly to a new high in entertainment delight!


I must admit that I had never previously watched “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” although I had heard a lot about it. Audrey Hepburn really is so naturally elegant. The relationship formed between Holly and Paul, is such a lovely tale of romance when you least expect it. Paul moves into the same building in which Holly lives in. He really must think shes a bit crazy when they first meet. When she explains that her cat is just called cat as they don’t belong to each other. Mickey Rooney’s performance as Mr. Yunioshi was just fantastic, it even took my a while to realise that it was him.

At the end I really did think she was going to leave, but the rain and searching for the cat . . . yes cat is the cat’s name. Don’t ask, just watch the movie. The way they look at each other just before she finds the cat is incredible, then the way he looks at her when she wraps it in her coat, with moonriver begineing to play over. Then they kiss in the rain, its so cliche but works so fantastically well in this classic film that shows how movies should be made. Sometimes less is more, in my opinion. One of the many reasons why I enjoyed watching older movies.
