Revisiting "Roman Holiday" on the eve of the trip to Rome

On the eve of our trip to Rome, I deliberately revisited "Roman Holiday".

Not much to say, a movie from more than half a century ago, with a simple plot and a lively rhythm, still looks so comfortable today, but it doesn't feel like a cliché at all.

This is first of all thanks to Audrey Hepburn's angelic temperament. No matter what the plot is, there will never be a trace of vulgarity where she is. The elegance of the princess dress, the beauty of long hair, the beauty of short hair, and the refined headwear at the end, as if to say that no matter how she is packaged, Audrey Hepburn can radiate different styles of light.

Thanks to Gregory Peck's tall and unrestrained, as well as the uninhibited language and character of Americans, but also contains a heart full of true love.

As well as the setting of lines and scenes, there is no nonsense, no contrived words, and no I love you. But the love between the two has infected audiences around the world for generations.

The ancient Roman Colosseum, the mouth of truth, I want to walk through the places where they laughed.

Go to Rome!
