An unusual love story, glamorous, sophisticated, with more than a touch of the bizarre.

Audrey Hepburn gives one of her most stylish and iconic performances in this charming if slightly sentimental version of Truman Capote's famous novella.

Well, the movie still looks very good, and you'd need a heart of stone not to love the cat.

Blake Edwards's hymn to New York high style and high living with its charming heroine, along with her cat (called "Cat") and those wonderful Johnny Mercer Moon River lyrics, has hardly dated since its release.

It's as ditsy and delightful as ever - with charm enough to forgive it plenty.

...the final scene, a tender sequence that you can sop up with a sponge, but if you aren't moved by it you probably stick kittens with pins.

When it comes to cinematic fashion and romance, perhaps none are more iconic than Blake Edwards' Breakfast at Tiffany's.

...a more ordinary movie than I remembered, with its clunky bits and a story that seems to betray authorial intent. Holly Golightly is not about the conventional American dream of domestic paradise; she is about the American perquisite of reinvention

...the movie maintains a spirited bounce in its step that is still infectious today.

It's like getting two movies for the price of one %u2013 light romantic comedy and a relatively effective human drama at the same time.

Enduringly enjoyable romantic comedy always worth a revisit. Tone and performances are delicately judged, and Hepburn is radiant throughout.

Out of the elusive, but curiously intoxicating Truman Capote fiction, scenarist George Axelrod has developed a surprisingly moving film, touched up into a stunningly visual motion picture.

This story of a party girl in love with a gigolo allows [director Blake] Edwards to create a very handsome film, with impeccable Technicolor photography by Franz Planer.

Although the movie won Oscars for music and song ("Moon River") by Henry Mancini, "Breakfast At Tiffany's" has a dark underbelly and unlikable characters made attractive by their eccentric behavior and expensive wardrobes.
