Nettlebeck has amassed an interesting cast likely to attract attention, so it's disheartening that the film is ultimately a rather ungainly and predictable familial drama.
June 15, 2019
A near-glacial two hours that somehow forgets to explore two of its more interesting characters - an impressive feat considering it only really has three to begin with.

Overall, the final result is a little slight, there is enough warmth and charm to Mr Morgan's Last Love to carry it along amiably, with a small but excellent cast all of whom shine.

The use of Paris is an especially lame attempt to fasttrack some pathos and twee romance into the mix and jars with the sometime deep politicking on grief and family politics.

It's Caine who shines brightest with his gentle anger and newfound joy mixing into a bittersweet reconciliatory release.
October 10, 2014
Caine's brave attempt to speak pigeon French with an American accent produces some unintentionally comedic moments. Every time he says 'Merci', for example, you'll think he's spotted a horse. As in "mare, see!"

Sir Michael Caine is London personified, a British movie icon with one of the most distinctive voices in cinema. So why on earth would you mis-cast him as an American in Paris with a totally implausible accent?

A melancholic cross between Venus and Goodbye, Mr Chips, which could have been more enticingly entitled Venus and Chips.
July 11, 2014
The great Michael Caine brings a touching vulnerability to Mr Morgan's Last Love, a maudlin melodrama set in a pretty-looking Paris.
July 11, 2014
Caine's heart-rending flourish aside, this often mawkish drama struggles to make a point.
July 10, 2014
The film is a little too soft-centred to do justice to its own themes of bereavement, jealousy and family breakdown.
July 10, 2014
It soon becomes clear that the chances of Caine and Poésy's characters' lop-sided relationship germinating into something interesting are vanishingly slim.
July 10, 2014
Ultimately something of a disappointment thanks to a frustrating script that lacks focus and isn't sure which story to tell.
July 8, 2014
This sentimental Michael Caine drama is so dull that doctors could prescribe it to treat insomnia.
July 7, 2014
Complex emotions and a gentle exploration of interpersonal connections make this Paris-set drama worth a look, especially since it's so nicely played by the eclectic cast.
July 3, 2014
The cloying sweetness of this film is pretty murderous.
July 3, 2014
[A] sentimental, platitude-strewn film ...
March 1, 2014
has a bitter sweet quality that will appeal to an older demographic whose empathy with the themes will overcome the glitches

It's the labouring nature and tone of the story that eventually wore me down in this tale about grief, love and loss, despite a wonderful cast headed by Michael Caine

Last Love ambles into a finale that tries to resonate with something resembling tragic beauty, but never earns that right.
