Movie Info

The efforts of an American ex-patriot living on a remote Mediterranean to establish himself as a serious musician are constantly thwarted by every inhabitant of his small village in director Francesca Joseph's ensemble comedy drama. Larry (Stanley Tucci) thought that by moving to the village that was once home to a celebrated European composer he would find inspiration, but instead he just spends his nights playing for peanuts in the local pubs. Eventually Larry becomes convinced that if he … More

With sometimes bumpy work, both in editing and directing. There are moments of overt sentimentality, but performances are great

Audience Reviews for Four Last Songs

Cast: Emmanuelle Seigner, Jena Malone, Rhys Ifans, Maria Esteve, Stanley Tucci, Hugh Bonneville, Karl Johnson, Jessica Hynes

Director: Francesca Joseph

Summary: American pianist Larry (Stanley Tucci) tries to arrange a concert of a recently deceased composer's work at a Mediterranean getaway, only to be fought tooth and nail by the island's inhabitants. The dead man's widow, his beautiful mistress, nosy and drunken neighbors, a jealous girlfriend and a suddenly appearing long-lost daughter only add to Larry's troubles.

My Thoughts: "The film has a fun talented cast who portrays some great unique characters. The story is sweet, sad, and dramatic. The film has quirky written all over it. There are brothers in heartbreak over a mothers passing. A wife scorned by a deceased husband who had an mistress. A mistress who can't find love again. A musician who's talent has never seen the outside of a restaurant. A young nineteen yr old looking for a relationship from a father she never knew. There are a lot of things happening in the film. The thing that makes the film is not just the story, but the characters. I absolutely loved Rhys Ifans in the film as Dickie. He was a fun emotional wreck, and I loved every minute of his character. Stanley Tucci is always wonderful in any film he's in. I love Jena Malone and try to see every film she is in. I love her acting. She was great as Frankie. If you love indie films, then you might just love this film."


Super Reviewer


Nice Mediterranean and musical backdrop -- but the tension of the disparate characters sets up too much tension in the beginning, which forces the viewer to wait for the ending cadence, which, after waiting so long, ends up being bittersweetly unsatisfying.


A really beautiful story with a simply killer cast. Fun, touching, romantic, and inspiring all rolled into two hours of whit, beautiful scenery and classical music. A Thoroughly enjoyable experience.
