Breakfast at Tiffany’s Best Scenes

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Last week I rewatched the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, though I’m not sure I’d ever seen it till the end. This often happens to me with classic movies: I’ve seen so many random scenes that I don’t know if I’ve actually seen the whole movie or not.

Anyway, it felt like the first time in my life that I was watching it.

And I don’t know if this is a good or bad thing, but Holly Golightly — the character played by Audrey Hepburn, — reminded me of myself. Too much. For this reason, I was deeply touched by the story.

In this post, I want to share with you what I consider to be the best scenes of this 20th-century classic film that will always be in our hearts.

Opening Scene

Oh my, I’d never seen someone eating a croissant with so much style, especially after spending the night partying! How can she look so put together all the time?

Definitely, this is one of the best movie opening scenes I’ve never seen.

Holly Meets Paul

What I like about this scene is the chatter under her sweet hangover — and the man’s shirt she’s wearing. Paul seems fascinated.

And, of course, when Holly is getting dressed up and finally puts on her Pamela hat, and says “How do I look?”

Audrey Hepburn Singing Moon River

I think you’ll agree with me when I say that this is probably the best scene in the movie. Apart from the fact that the song Moon River is magical, Audrey Hepburn’s face close-up is BEAUTIFUL.
