Containing performances from Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, and William Holden, Billy Wilder’s supremely enjoyable Sabrina, which would have succeeded at least as well had Cary Grant remained in the role that eventually went to Bogie, is nothing if not the embodiment of classy, golden-age Hollywood cinema, embracing as it does the American way, the notion of Europe – especially Paris – as the place of finding the self, and above all its own stars.

You write reeeeally long sentences. :p
If you can’t do justice through quality, quantity has to suffice.
My totally ungrammatical sentence on Sabrina:
This film has had me swooning since I was, like, eight (and I am not a swooner, which is a testament to the film’s power over even the coldest and most unromantic hearts), and it has everything to do with Sabrina’s enviable handwriting, the Givenchy eye candy, Paris, Bogie in preppy clothes, and William Holden’s dimples.
