The disarming comedy A Little Romance features Diane Lane as a 13-year-old American, living in Paris with her businessman stepfather (Arthur Hill) and her promiscuous mother (Sally Kellerman). Mom is currently enamored with pretentious-filmmaker David Dukes, and it is on the set of Dukes' latest picture that Lane meets another 13-year-old, insatiable French film buff Thelonious Bernard. A likeable street-smart petty thief and gambler, Bernard is instantly attracted to Lane. With the help of roguish old Laurence Olivier, Lane and Bernard arrange a romantic rendezvous under the Bridge of Sighs in Venice. Naturally, when the kids disappear it's a cause for international concern, but all ends as it should. Some of the best moments in A Little Romance belong to Broderick Crawford, unselfconsciously playing "himself" at a movie party.

I just saw A Little Romance on the television last night and I fell in love with the movie. The actors and actresses did a great job and I thought the plot was really romantic. All in all, it was a great movie!

A little Romance is even more delightful then when it came out in the summer of 79. A timeless story of first love directed by the late great George Roy Hill(The Sting & Butch Cassidy)Great supporting cast of Sally Kellerman,the late David Duke,Arthur HIll,and Broderick Crawford. Diane Lane shines in her first film with a wonderful performance by Theolonious Bernard and the late great Lawrence Olivier.Great music by Georges Delerue(which won an oscar)and lovely photography of Pierre-William Glen of Paris and Venice.A story of two young lovers going to Venice and kissing at sunset in a gondola under the bridge of sigh. One of my all time favorite films finally on DVD.

Time does indeed fly!! This sweet pastry came out during Valentine in 1979 in my homeland Hong Kong. It's a collector DVD for anyone who enjoys love story especially the background music by our late Mozart of Cinema, Georges Delerue (1925-1992). It's your mistake if you miss!!

An endearing film which catapults us back to our first 'love'. Sir Laurence Olivier's performance is tinged with sentiment, and a sense of his own mortality. Although, we know the young love birds will never meet again, the 'jump' at the end of the film, is a testimony of everlasting love.
