I just watched Sabrina, directed by the famous Billy Wilder. It’s been a while since last time I saw Billy Wilder’s film, so right now I’m checking my list of all Wilder’s I’ve watched.......
Well, in my list I only got Ace in the Hole, starring Kirk Douglas, a movie that is hard to forget. But I think I’ve seen more than that.
In spite of that, I think the movie is very good. The stars are superb. The plot is awesome. The music is great.
The story tells about a love story of Sabrina, daughter of a driver of a very rich family, Larrabee, and sons of the family. Sabrina, who always dream of David, one of the sons and become his princess, finally had her chance after she came back from France attending a cooking school. She matured and become so beautiful that David don’t even recognize her face. Their love affair goes on with obstacles here and there, especially since their social-background differences. But some accident occur that the story become hard to guess and interesting to follow.
David is played by William Holden. I’ve notice his face in a lot of movies that unfortunately I can’t remember except, of course, Bridge on River Kwai(and Sunset Boulevard). The other Larrabee is played by Humprey Bogart. Sabrina, the main character, is played by Audrey Hepburn. To be honest, this is the first time I saw her movie. I’ve seen her Tiffany’s poster many times, but I’ve never seen her acting except her small role on Spielberg’s Always, which is not on her best period anymore (even though she is still very good). One thing I can tell you about her performance, she’s not all beauty, her acting might be even better than her appearance. However, all the cast are awesome. So probably it is also mighty influenced by the director.
The music is superb. It’s strange I suddenly forgot how it sounds right now. I still remember it a while ago, though. But I still remember my impression. It is very good!(What?)
One thing that mainly makes me sad about this movie is because I have to watched the movie in part, and the last 20 minutes was not a very good watching experience for me for my bad headache, so I’m not sure about that part.
Overall, the movie is great. Totally recommended!
