Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
After a falling-out with writing partner Charles Brackett, the legendary Billy Wilder teamed with the talented Romanian writer I.A.L. Diamond for one of his best films, Love in the Afternoon. The film captured the sophisticated wit that would mark many of their future collaborations, including Some Like It Hot and The Apartment. Love has also been interpreted as a tribute to Wilder's hero and former colleague, director Ernst Lubitsch, and the presence of Gary Cooper in the lead role lends credence to that idea: he's basically reprising his role from Lubitsch's Bluebeard's Eighth Wife. The first of Wilder's pictures with Diamond, Love was one of three classics that Wilder released in 1957; the others were Spirit of St. Louis and Witness for the Prosecution.

    POIGNANT LOVE STORY - TERRIBLE TRANSFER

    ¿Love In The Afternoon¿ sparkles like a diamond tiara accidentally stumbled upon while exploring ancient ruins. In this vintage May/December romance from Billy Wilder, Arian Chavessez (Audrey Hepburn) the precocious ingénue daughter of a Parisian P.I. (Maurice Chevalier) decides to follow one of her father's client¿s husbands, middle-age playboy, Frank Flannagan (Gary Cooper) to his hotel suite. When Arian discovers Flannagan romancing a married woman, she takes pity and rescues him from a jealous husband. But all is not without personal consequence. Succumbing to Frank¿s charms, Arian discovers a burgeoning romance developing between she and Frank. Arian's father is dead set against their match until he suddenly realizes that it is indeed true love. The film is an elegant little nothing from Wilder, sandwiched somewhere between Sunset Blvd. and the ultra chic, Sabrina in his illustrious body of work and unfortunately overshadowed by his other considerable masterworks. A real shame, because this is a great romantic comedy/drama with an unusually sober and clairvoyant perspective on the older man/younger woman scenario. Warner Home Video has given us a rather dull looking transfer. The gray scale starts out good but then deteriorates to a rather blurry mess. The picture is incredibly soft focused at times. When the picture is sharp, background detail is fairly accurately rendered with only a hint of edge enhancement, pixelization or aliasing problems. Black levels are weak. Contrast levels are often worse. The audio is mono and unusually strident, with a considerable amount of background hiss that is not usually the norm for Warner Brother DVD's. There are NO extras.

    Wonderfully sweet Audrey Hepburn movie

    Even though it's in black and white, ''Love in the Afternoon'' glows with Audrey's innocent beauty and charm. It's a must for any Audrey fan and is often overlooked. The only problem is that Gary Cooper seems too old to be her love interest, but Audrey often stars in similar May-December romances anyway.
