Rotten: A Little Romance is so ponderous it seems almost mean spirited. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Sep 22, 2015

Fresh: The film's portrait of young love may be touching, but its most moving moments celebrate love of a different kind: the passion that movie professionals, both young and old, have for their craft. – Frank Rich, TIME Magazine, Sep 22, 2015

Fresh: Fulcrum in script is the beneficent boulevardier, limned by Laurence Olivier in a modern refashioning of the old Maurice Chevalier role. – Variety Staff, Variety, Sep 23, 2015

Diane Lane was so precocious in this movie! She did a phenomenal job in her role at such a young age. This was my favorite movie as a child. I dreamt of going to the Bridge of Sighs. I love the ending. The coolest thing is that when you watch Diane Lane in her recent movies, you can still see her expressions from this film in her face. She appears ageless. You're in for a treat if you watch this movie!


my favorite movie


I return to this movie once each year. It’s the role that made Diane Lane an instant star. She left me convinced that she was indeed enormously intelligent and very charismatic to boot. And, Sir Laurence Olivier was wonderful as well. If you’re a Diane Lane fan, such as I, A Little Romance is a must-see flick.
