Movie Info

Parenthood stirs up a wealth of mixed emotions in this drama from Italy. Carlo (Stefano Accorsi) and Giulia (Giovanna Mezzogiorno) are a couple in their late twenties who realize they've crossed the final threshold into adulthood when Giulia discovers she's going to have a baby. Even though Carlo has already settled down, he sees parenthood as the first step towards becoming the sort of middle-class suburbanite he's never respected, and he's not happy about it. Carlo's friends are also having … More

Critic Reviews for The Last Kiss (L'Ultimo bacio)

All Critics (87) | Top Critics (33) | Fresh (57) | Rotten (21) | DVD (6)

The film skates by on charm, wit and a firm belief that commitment is always the best choice.

November 5, 2003
Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

Although it gives us more characters than we can easily keep count of, it's hard to care about any of them.

November 8, 2002
Arizona Republic
Top Critic

The lively appeal of The Last Kiss lies in the ease with which it integrates thoughtfulness and pasta-fagioli comedy.

November 4, 2002
Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Top Critic

The movie does a good job of laying out some of the major issues that we encounter as we journey through life.

Top Critic

Painted with broad strokes but with a palette of rich, colorful details.

Top Critic

Repackages messy human dilemmas into something neat, tidy and oh-so-manipulatively inspiring.

Lessons of Darkness

...the viewer is unable to forge any kind of an emotional connection to these people.

Reel Film Reviews

Writer-director Muccino keeps things very energetic, with fluid and complicated camera work capturing people who are bursting with personality.

Shadows on the Wall

Leave it to those crazy Italians to make a light, breezy, stylish, romantic comedy that is not a whit light, breezy, stylish, romantic, or funny.

Movie Metropolis

[The film] tackles the topic of relationships in such a straightforward, emotionally honest manner that by the end, it's impossible to ascertain whether the film is, at its core, deeply pessimistic or quietly hopeful.

February 19, 2003
Creative Loafing

The vigorous, unsubtle acting provides consistent pleasure, once you stop expecting it to seem realistic.

Charlotte Observer

Makes a good chick flick for guys who want to appear artsy by taking their date to a foreign language film.

Film Threat

There's a lot more going on here than appears on the surface.

Full Review… | December 6, 2002
Deseret News, Salt Lake City

There is a racy emotionalism to the film, an almost Almodovaresque heat that is complemented by Muccino's at-times dazzling technique...

Full Review… | November 25, 2002
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

The film runs on a little longer than it needs to -- Muccino either doesn't notice when his story ends or just can't tear himself away from the characters -- but it's smooth and professional.

Sacramento News & Review

Though lighthearted in tone, this contemporary Roman tale weaves the intricate stories of a group of 30-somethings struggling to grasp the responsibilities that life has brought them.

Full Review… | October 25, 2002
Orlando Weekly

There's nothing particularly original about The Last Kiss, but it's pleasant, funny and oh, so Italian.

Full Review… | October 21, 2002
San Diego Metropolitan

Affectionately reminds us that, in any language, the huge stuff in life can usually be traced back to the little things.

Full Review… | October 18, 2002
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Girlfriends are bad, wives are worse and babies are the kiss of death in this bitter Italian comedy.

Full Review… | October 18, 2002
Sun Publications (Chicago, IL)

It's a vast, messy -- but sharply edited -- circle that writer-director Gabriele Muccino makes inherently watchable with balanced doses of comedy and reality.

Audience Reviews for The Last Kiss (L'Ultimo bacio)

this is a great movie! the american version doesn't even compare since it was homogeonized and removed the pain and true comedy. strong performances by all actors. i found the ending truly funny.

for sexuality, language, drug use.

L'Ultimo Bacio was a movie, in which some men will recognize themselves in. The movie was based on what most men feel as they are approaching, the age of 30, where its expected to grow up, marry or start a family. These are important decisions and sometimes they are not ready in making them yet. So they start doing the most funny things, which sometimes don't have happy ending at all. I highly recommend this movie. Love it.
