It's Caine who shines brightest with his gentle anger and newfound joy mixing into a bittersweet reconciliatory release.

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.

The great Michael Caine brings a touching vulnerability to Mr Morgan's Last Love, a maudlin melodrama set in a pretty-looking Paris.

Caine's heart-rending flourish aside, this often mawkish drama struggles to make a point.

The film is a little too soft-centred to do justice to its own themes of bereavement, jealousy and family breakdown.

It soon becomes clear that the chances of Caine and Posy's characters' lop-sided relationship germinating into something interesting are vanishingly slim.

Ultimately something of a disappointment thanks to a frustrating script that lacks focus and isn't sure which story to tell.

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

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.

The cloying sweetness of this film is pretty murderous.

[A] sentimental, platitude-strewn film ...

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.

Dreary and depressing, it's so downmeat that even the considerable talents of Michael Caine cannot enliven the viewing.

A story told too often highlights three great young actors, an emerging director and features a humorous and workmanlike performance by the master, Michael Caine, himself.

Last Love doesn't have all that much story behind it, but a couple outstanding performances are enough to make it quite an enjoyable film.

A clunky, banal and over-expository screenplay saved by the well-nuanced, heartfelt performance of Michael Caine, one of the greatest actors of our time.
