Synopsis:
This delicately handled love story was legendary director David Lean's first colour film and his own personal favourite. Katherine Hepburn shines in the leading role and both director and star were nominated for Oscars. American spinster Jane Hudson has finally saved enough to take the trip of a lifetime and she hopes Venice will bring a spark of magic into her life. Overwhelmed by the beauty of her surroundings her holiday becomes all the more special when she encounters a charming antiques dealer and is soon swept of her of her feet. Could this be the romance for which she has waited her whole life?

Enchanting view of a sublime Venice. - Summertime review by CB

Beautifully filmed in Venice, a treat of its own. The storyline is predictable, so what, The star is as magnetic as ever. Just the ending though....did they run out of ideas or money? Seemed rushed and deflationary.

Delightful Film-no surprises but Venice is beautifully filmed .Simple story for swooning teenagers.Hepburn is excellent & Rossano charming.

I am not surprised that David Lean made Venice his second home after this.
