Love in The Afternoon Summary

Love in the Afternoon is a romantic comedy film directed by Billy Wilder and starring Gary Cooper, Audrey Hepburn, and Maurice Chevalier. The screenplay by Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond is based on the 1920 Claude Anet novel Ariane, jeune fille russe (Ariane, Young Russian Girl). The film tells the story of Ariane Chavasse (Hepburn), a young cello student who is hired by her father, a private detective, to follow Frank Flannagan (Cooper), a wealthy American businessman who is suspected of having an affair with a married woman. Ariane is initially amused by Flannagan’s womanizing ways, but she soon finds herself falling in love with him.

Flanigan is initially reluctant to reciprocate Ariane’s feelings, as he is already married and has no intention of leaving his wife. However, he is eventually won over by Ariane’s beauty, intelligence, and sense of humor. The film ends with Ariane and Flannagan getting married, despite the objections of their families. The film is a classic romantic comedy that explores the themes of love, marriage, and the power of true love.
