Film Review by Allen Henriquez

Funny Face (1957)

Director: Stanley Donen

Music: Ira Gershwin

Cast: Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astaire, Kay Thompson, Suzy Parker

 

A fashion designer decides the next model for their line will be someone plain made into something spectacular. The pick, Audrey Hepburn, Audrey’s character works in a bookstore but has other interest: such as existential philosophy, and modern dance.

The fashion designer’s team take Audrey to Paris to promote her, the photographer on the trip, Fred Astaire. Stanley Donen the director (On the Town, Royal Wedding and Charade) does a wonderful job with: Paris, Audrey’s dancing, and Fred’s, one man, entertainment extravaganza.

The film’s delight and surprise is the dancing ability of Audrey. Hey, look, something special; the film is fun. Fred Astaire gives a more flowing, ballet style, of dance. Funny Face is a joyful, spirited romp.
