On their third identical voyage from London to the Riviera, Joanna Wallace (Audrey Hepburn) and husband Mark (Albert Finney) explore their 12-year marriage in a series of wry and illuminating flashbacks. They reminisce about the glorious beginning of their love affair, the early years of marriage and the events that led to their subsequent infidelities. As they try to understand their relationship, they must accept how they have changed if they are to rekindle their original love. The film's lush score, one of Henry Mancini's finest, received a Golden Globe nomination. Audrey Hepburn also received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress. The film is arguably one of the most stylistically influential movies from the '60s.

Rotten: The picture never quite finds its tone.
Not one of my favorites...
but nonetheless, a very good film. This really shows the versatility that Audrey Hepburn had. Wonderful performances from both Audrey and Albert Finney. I highly recommend at least renting it.
Saw this many times when it showed in theaters 40+ years ago. Still love it and the music is perfect. So glad Itunes has it available !
Modern For Its Time, Check the Perfect Fairy Tale Ending At The Door
I rented this movie, and when I told my mom, her response was, "stinky, stinky movie!" I chose to ignore that statement and to watch it anyways. I'm glad I did. I ended up really liking it. Director Stanley Donen made a movie that dispels the typical fairy tale-esque romances that were pretty much, more or less, the standard of the time. Because, when you think about it, real life doesn't happen that way. People in love in the real world have some kind of bumps along the way, and sometimes those bumps can be their undoing. What I like about this very 1960s movie is that not only does it make you think, but Mark and Joanna Wallace are real people. They confront their failures, infidelities, and the troubles that scar their relationship. Mark and Joanna are flawed. I'd rent this before I'd buy it, just in case. It is a movie most definitely worth watching but it is on the avant-garde side of things.
