A Little Romance ★★★ 1979 (PG)

An American girl living in Paris falls in love with a French boy; eventually they run away, to seal their love with a kiss beneath a bridge. Olivier gives a wonderful, if not hammy, performance as the old pickpocket who encourages her. Gentle, agile comedy based on the novel by Patrick Cauvin. 110m/C VHS, DVD . Laurence Olivier, Diane Lane, Thelonious Bernard, Sally Kellerman, Broderick Crawford; D: George Roy Hill; W: Allan Burns; M: Georges Delerue. Oscars ‘79: Orig. Score.
