Breakfast at Tiffany’s

We watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s last night at the end of Sands Birthday. Having now completed the transfer from DVD’s we thought we should start watching some, but this was a movie that we had recorded off Sky and hadn’t got round to watching. One of 20 or so actually!!!

I had read the book earlier this year and had been amazed how short it was, so it was somewhat of a surprise to see that the film was 2 hours long.

Although this was very much Sands choice on the night it was a film that I very much wanted to watch and really enjoyed.

There was a certain naivety to the movie from the time it was set and shot, but there was a certain modern day feel to the ‘celebrity seeking’ sort of nature of the main character. A true classic that I will probably be happy to watch again from time to time.

A good movie, and a perfect one to end Sands birthday with.

    I don’t believe I’ve ever seen the movie. But I do have a vague memory of buying the book, a few (maybe ten to fifteen) years back. If you had asked me before reading this post, it’s likely that the only thing I could remember about it is, as you’ve noted, the fact that the book is so short.

    The movie is on my list of movies to see, if only because of the iconic images of Audrey Hepburn for which the movie is responsible.

    The other “classic” I read at about the same time was “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”. It turned out to be a really good read. I bought the film on DVD and it has been sitting on my to-be-watched pile for nearly a year now. Since I’m now making a concerted effort to get through the pile (just over 30 to go!), its time will surely come, er, soon… 🙂

    I read and watched that for the same reasons a while back. Well worth watching, but only when you have time and inclination to really focus on it.

    > but only when you have time and inclination to really focus on it

    That’s probably why it has sat in the to-be-watched pile all this time…

    I love Breakfast at Tiffany’s and other Audrey Hepburn movies. It also reminds me of that 90’s song also.

    I sure am hoping and praying I’d get my hands on that epic
    romantic comedy movie! You know my grandma looks a bit like the late Audrey Hepburn.
    She sure is iconic.
