News & Interviews for Last Holiday
Critic Reviews for Last Holiday
The picture is surprisingly moving, delicately handled and full of lovely vignettes.
Simple and modest in structure but delightfully rich in character.
Slight and mildly amusing dark comedy of rebirth and regret.
the film would not register above passable if not for its central figure
Audience Reviews for Last Holiday
Alec Guinness leads a cast of familiar English characters in this short story about a dying man's last fling at life that's as cozy and predictable as a drink after work at your favorite watering hole.
This is a cool movie, it's sort of a dark comedy at times, and a drama at other times. The story is good and the actors are good. I liked this movie, and I recommend watching it.
im blown away that there are people that dont love this film. rules of the game may be known as the best commentary on high society, but dare i say it, i like this film better. guinness was incredible in the lead role, and every actor played their roles perfectly. the emotional roller-coaster that we receive is not melo-dramamtic, its far more subtle and intentional, and the message of the film carries major weight. a must see.
