Decent song numbers. It's a self-contained musical with all the lyrics furthering the simple story. It's just fine and well done, for what it is. However, the most entreating aspects of this adaptation are Hepburn and Harrison. Great dialogue and performances make the central conflict between them fun to watch. Bits of sneaky comedy between their actions and dialogue are spread throughout. Enjoyable, easy watch.

Audrey Hepburn, however, did a marvelous job playing both a common flower girl and a respectable young lady.

There’s really not much to this film. There are some wonderful songs that to this …
