Horrible ending...

A classic! A little bit dated, but the dialogue is killer and Lean captures Venice effortlessly. "Lady, you are peculiar." - what a line.

I just came back from Venice and I loved seeing places I went, recognizing piazzas and areas. Even the view from the train station is the same, the doors are the same! I want to go back so badly. What a beautiful movie, an era long gone. So glad I discovered it. Thank you Kanopy!

A little too cliché story....

Movies like this are where the cliches were made. I think the acting saved it. Maybe it's a cliched scenario but the delivery of the lines was perfect. Best wishes.
