Plot Summary

The first shot of Charade shows a pistol swinging ominously into a close-up - and Audrey Hepburn gets a squirt of water right in the eye. And so it goes: Charade is an elegant thriller that manages to spoof its genre while at the same time being uncommonly suspenseful. Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn are the ideal leads for keeping their cool under preposterous twists in a deadly chase through Parisian environs. The supporting heavies include James Coburn, George Kennedy and Walter Matthau. There are five corpses; the red-herrings are incalculable; the gowns are by Givenchy; the percussive score is by Henry Mancini and the point of the whole thing is style and wit for their own sake. And what better sake is there? Charade, in its own way, is one of the most radical and experimental films of the '60s.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Firsttime teaming of Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn, a natural, gives the sophisticated romantic caper an international appeal, plus the selling points of adventure, suspense and suberb comedy. – Robert B. Frederick, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Made when the studio system was on its last legs, Charade still feels fresh, quick-witted, nothing like the artificial, airless Hollywood pictures of its time. – Charles Taylor, Salon.com, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: A terrifically entertaining comedy-thriller. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A novel, auteur-driven film populated with reliably charismatic stars; even at the age of 50 it leaves most modern produce in the dust. It was also a hit. Five decades later, why has Hollywood not learnt their lesson? – Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, Oct 20, 2014

One Of My Favorites From Audrey

L.O.V.E. Love this movie.It's an action packed mystory with tons of twists and turns.It's enough to make your head spin.And the surprise at the end where you finally find out who has and what is the treasure...I'm telling you it's great.you've got to see this movie,I mean,I loved it. LOVE, MILKSHAKE ( Buggs Buny )

absolutly a must see!!!!

I love this movie! The first time I saw it I was blown away by the plot. I was so.....I was so into it I never paused it to do anything. Not even to get a glass of water. Get this movie. Buy or rent. You won't regret it!

One of Audrey's Best

Forget Holly Golightly. Forget Jo Stockton...even forget "Anya", hidden princess. This is undoubtedly one of Audrey Hepburn's best roles. You don't know who to trust in this movie, as it twists and turns at the most unexpected times. And Cary Grant? The only word to describe him is "delectable". He plays a scoundrel that you'll love to hate and hate to love. A star-studded cast for a five star film.
