Based on the play Sabrina Fair. Or, A woman of the world. A romantic comedy / Sabrina. Comedy in Four Acts by Samuel A. Taylor presents Sabrina by Sydney Pollack is a modernized remake of the romantic story of 1995, already in 1954 by Billy Wilder with Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart in the lead roles and directed, inter alia, with a Oscar for best costume design and a Golden Globe for Best Screenplay by Samuel A. Taylor, Billy Wilder and Ernest Lehman was awarded. Even the remake was twice nominated three times in the category Music for an Oscar and a Golden Globe. Unlike the original black and white Sydney Pollack’s Sabrina strikes a conversational tone and significantly easier to design products with a few lengths too popular, but the effort is clearly to implement a modernized version of the story as a romantic fairy tale. It’s sometimes nice to look at, but for a two-hour film by Sydney Pollack, has turned the very excellent work, but then falls Sabrina from predominantly disappointing.
