Linus and David Larrabee, two sons from a very rich family, are both in their twenties. Linus is all work – busily running the family corporate empire, he has no time for a wife and family. David is all play – technically he is employed by the family business, but never shows up for work, spends all his time entertaining, and has been married and divorced three times. Meanwhile, Sabrina Fairchild is the young, shy, and awkward daughter of the household chauffeur, who goes away to Paris for two years, and returns to capture David’s attention, while falling in love with Linus.

CinemaSerf starts with the sighting of a young woman cleaning the limousine that her wealthy father drives. “Larrabee” family. She has a thing for the younger brother “David”As she grows, she is sent to Paris to learn cordon bleu cooking. Upon her return to the now much older “David” (William Holden) offers her a lift and though he doesn’t recognise her, it is soon clear that she has lost none of her affections for him, and he now reciprocates. This throws a spanner into the works for the brother “Linus”(Humphrey Bogart), a man who plans a large-scale merger to make bouncy glass. His brother marries the daughter of his partner company. “David”After a mishap involving his rear end and some broken glasses, he is not interested in this. “Linus”Concocts an idea to send “Sabrina”Back to France. This erstwhile steely man does not, however, factor in the effect his hanging out with this vibrant and intelligent young woman is going to have on him – and pretty soon he is just as smitten as his brother! John Williams brings value to the role of her stiff upper-lipped father. “Waltons”Ellen Corby, his hyper-confident secretary, is a familiar face to fans “Miss McCardle” and Billy Wilder’s script is entertaining and witty. There is a great chemistry on screen between the hugely charismatic Hepburn and Bogart and we do learn how not to make a soufflé omelette! Great fun.
Filipe Manuel Neto: **An excellent romantic comedy and one of Billy Wilder’s best works.**
I saw the film yesterday and liked it. I have seen many films with the same actors. There is no doubt that their talent is evident, and it’s always a good bet to watch the films that they made. This romantic comedy, unlike most of the ones currently produced, is not bland or too sweet. Instead, the romance and humor are woven together in the perfect measure to make the audience laugh and enjoy both the characters and story.
Directed and intelligently written by Billy Wilder, who gives us one of the best films of his career, it brings us the classic story of the employee’s daughter who falls in love with the boss’s son. I’ve seen this in films, in plays, in soap operas in almost every country… it’s one of the oldest ideas for a romantic film. What gives the film its strength is the way in which the director conceptualizes everything and leaves his vision on every detail. This vision of him includes an intelligent comedy, a cast of talented actors, and the wonderful Audrey Hepburn experiencing one of his most interesting moments in her career. She couldn’t look more elegant, and it was interesting to see how the actress, so associated with noble or refined characters, embodied one who comes from such modest origins! William Holden was also very impressive. He is a committed and intelligent actor. As for Humphrey Bogart… he is always a safe bet, an actor who commits himself to his work and guarantees results, but if even he was aware that he was too old for the role, what can I say? He was absolutely right…
On a technical level, there isn’t much to say: the film doesn’t invest much in great effects and complicated cinematographic resources. All things considered it seems that the majority of the budget went to securing a carefully selected cast. The cinematography and soundtrack are both functional and regular. The sets and costume are beautiful, but within the expectations we had. The costumes are a fascinating aspect of the movie, and Hubert de Givenchy’s contribution (unfairly not credited) is quite evident.
