This sentimental Michael Caine drama is so dull that doctors could prescribe it to treat insomnia.

This somber work about the worthiness of living has little life in it.

"Last Love" starts out promising enough, but alas, it doesn't last.

This dull, dawdling film, adapted from Françoise Dorner's novel "La Douceur Assassine," eventually succumbs to sentimentality.

Not much happens in Sandra Nettelbeck's intimate family drama, but its well-drawn connections between lonely souls make an impact nonetheless.

Nettelbeck ... strives to make Last Love a genuinely complex drama rooted in recognizable human behavior, and fails utterly in that effort.

Though there are some small, beautiful moments in Nettelbeck's drama, Last Love as a whole feels like it's been dosed with Xanax.

Mawkishly adapted from Françoise Dorner's novel by Sandra Nettelbeck (Mostly Martha), the proceedings are so gentle that no dramatic momentum materializes.

It almost feels like the film splits into two separate stories in the second half.

"Last Love" sticks to a flaccid middle ground lacking any real drama or pathos.
