He discovers her mother with a lover and he commits a crime. He will end in a boarding school for minor delinquents of which one day he escapes to see the sea.

I liked this film because it seems like you could take a photo from each moment.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a 1961 American film starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, and featuring Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam, and Mickey Rooney. It was directed by Blake Edwards.

Paul Varjak moves into a New York apartment building and becomes intrigued by his pretty, quirky neighbor Holly Golightly. Holly’s lifestyle confuses and fascinates Paul; in public she flits through parties with a sexy, sophisticated air, but when they’re alone she changes into a sweetly and vulnerable girl.

It was such a good film that got two Oscars among other prizes. If you like Audrey Hepburn and her films, you will be charmed with this one. The best is what he says to her at the end.
