I was surprised at how good this movie is. A remake of a movie starring Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden, directed by one of the greats of American cinema, Billy Wilder, is not exactly the kind of task for the faint of heart. The fact that Sydney Pollack (They Shoot Horses Don't They? (1969), Tootsie (1982), Out of Africa (1985), etc.) decided to do it must have raised a few eyebrows in Hollywood land.

Sabrina (played by Julia Ormond) was a geeky loner who sat up in a tree watching and fantasizing about a man named David (played by Greg Kinnear) - a lovable, charming ladies' man. She later spends a few years in Paris, and upon her return home, she is transformed into a sensual, sophisticated woman. Unknowingly, David picks her up after she was seen hitchhiking (albeit with a different appearance), and slowly begins to fall for her. They both seem to get the chance to have what they (or rather Sabrina) wanted a few years back.

And here is where the story takes a few twists. David's older, wiser, and seemingly callous businessman brother Linus (played by Harrison Ford) notices the sparks between David and Sabrina, and immediately concocts a scheme to break them apart. The reason for this is because the business of which Linus is involved, was going to reach an agreement for a nice business deal involving the parents of David's then-fiancée, Liz (played by Lauren Holly), but soon realizes if David falls for Sabrina, then he'll no longer have much interest in Liz, and therefore, the deal would be jeopardized. So, Linus takes it upon himself to try his best to get Sabrina out of the picture. He goes to low lengths in trying to keep David and Sabrina apart - one of them is the darkly hilarious scheme which involved keeping David on heavy sedatives, which were really intended to be minor painkillers due to an unfortunate accident involving drinking glasses. These would keep him bed-ridden and disoriented. Inbetween all of this, Linus manipulates Sabrina by trying to pass himself off as a subtly charming and romantic guy, which in return gains her affections. But, something goes haywire in the scheme -- Linus starts to fall in love with her.

It must be mentioned that the ending scene (the one before Linus flies off to Paris to find Sabrina) was quite clever, spellbindingly & inexplicably funny, but in a subtle, classy, European manner. Doesn't seem like the kind of thing you see in many films, especially in the romantic heading.
