The film has never looked as good on home video. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a featurette starring Diane Lane, who shares stories about the making of the film, production notes, and the theatrical trailer. This is a fine release from Warner Bros.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
A Little Romance (1979) is an apt title for George Roy Hill's sweet-natured comedy about adolescent love amid the impeccable settings of Paris and Venice. Shot on location, the appealing romance between two outsider kids nicely captures the yearning and joy of first love without cliché Hollywood excess. Making her film debut as the Heidegger-reading Lauren, 14-year-old Diane Lane's beauty and self-possessed performance as the gifted American girl living abroad landed her on the cover of Time in 1979 as a young star in the making. Lane's onscreen appeal was ably matched by fellow newcomer Thelonious Bernard as teen genius and cinéaste Daniel (who is first seen taking in Hill's Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid dubbed en français). Laurence Olivier is expertly sly and paternal as the mysterious Julius, while Sally Kellerman and David Dukes are suitably and humorously witless; Broderick Crawford nearly steals his few scenes as "himself." Despite its charms, A Little Romance did not become another Hill blockbuster, but Allan Burns did receive an Oscar nomination for his adapted screenplay and Georges Delerue won the Oscar for his enchanting score.

I just saw A Little Romance on the television last night and I fell in love with the movie. The actors and actresses did a great job and I thought the plot was really romantic. All in all, it was a great movie!

A little Romance is even more delightful then when it came out in the summer of 79. A timeless story of first love directed by the late great George Roy Hill(The Sting & Butch Cassidy)Great supporting cast of Sally Kellerman,the late David Duke,Arthur HIll,and Broderick Crawford. Diane Lane shines in her first film with a wonderful performance by Theolonious Bernard and the late great Lawrence Olivier.Great music by Georges Delerue(which won an oscar)and lovely photography of Pierre-William Glen of Paris and Venice.A story of two young lovers going to Venice and kissing at sunset in a gondola under the bridge of sigh. One of my all time favorite films finally on DVD.

Time does indeed fly!! This sweet pastry came out during Valentine in 1979 in my homeland Hong Kong. It's a collector DVD for anyone who enjoys love story especially the background music by our late Mozart of Cinema, Georges Delerue (1925-1992). It's your mistake if you miss!!

An endearing film which catapults us back to our first 'love'. Sir Laurence Olivier's performance is tinged with sentiment, and a sense of his own mortality. Although, we know the young love birds will never meet again, the 'jump' at the end of the film, is a testimony of everlasting love.
