Year: 1954
Genre: Classics, Comedy, Drama and Romance
Conclusion: 4/5
The cinematography is fantastic and the scenery is stunning to look at. I enjoyed all the costumes that were worn and thought they were amazing. Great ensemble cast who all put their own style to the film. This has got very witty dialogue and very well written. It is a film that has warmth and humour. I could say that it is very predictable. I did enjoy the music, especially the song from Frank Sinatra who sings the title song although he is not listed in the credits. This movie was re-made ten years later known as The Pleasure Seekers by Jean Negulesco. The Trevi Fountain is one of my favourite places to visit although I have to say that I have never made a wish there! At the Academy Awards in 1955 this won two Oscar Awards. They were for Best Cinematography, Color and also Best Music, Original Song.
