As George Roy Hill observed, A LITTLE ROMANCE is, in many ways, a
remake of his earlier take on adolescence, THE WORLD OF HENRY
ORIENT. But in this film the delicate relationship between stars
Thelonious Bernard as Daniel and Diane Lane as Lauren is
reciprocal. Both on the cusp of adolescence, they meet on a film
set in Paris when Daniel spots Lauren reading a book. The mutual
discovery of their shared intellectual precocity sparks a romance,
and the two begin dating amid the City of Lights. When Daniel ends
up slugging the egomaniacal director boyfriend (David Dukes) of her
self-absorbed actress mother, Kay (Sally Kellerman), Lauren is
forbidden to see him. Naturally, she refuses to obey. After Julius
(Laurence Olivier), a charming old con man, spins a tale for the
couple about lovers kissing under the Bridge of Sighs in Venice at
sunset, they arrange to go, taking him along as chaperone. Since
none of their parents has been informed about the impromptu trip,
an international search is soon under way. A completely charming
fable of adolescent romance set against picture-postcard European
backgrounds, the film is less about the emotional roller coaster of
love than the innocent joy of finding a soulmate at last. The kids
are perfectly cast in what may be Lane's best film, and one only
has to see Olivier kiss his fingers and press them against the
window as he watches the couple disappear to appreciate genius at
