Asano é sempre um ator interessante, mas a montagem é auto-indulgente e o roteiro, pretensioso.

It's an unsuccessful experiment in combining genres that are as irreconcilable as oil and water.

... a dreamy study in stillness broken by suicide fantasies, flashbacks, and the hired killers, but even the violence has a meditative even melancholy quality to it...

A sort of magic-realist Thai version of Lost in Translation, Last Life in the Universe is of the unlikely romance school of comedy, at once despairingly glib and buoyantly dark.

Last Life in the Universe isn't so much weightless as it is liable to inspire weightlessness.
