Last Love Reviews

November 1, 2013
This somber work about the worthiness of living has little life in it.
October 29, 2013
Though there are some small, beautiful moments in Nettelbeck's drama, Last Love as a whole feels like it's been dosed with Xanax.

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?
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
July 11, 2014
Caine's heart-rending flourish aside, this often mawkish drama struggles to make a point.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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!"

It soon becomes clear that the chances of Caine and Poésy's characters' lop-sided relationship germinating into something interesting are vanishingly slim.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 29, 2013
Mawkishly adapted from Françoise Dorner's novel by Sandra Nettelbeck (Mostly Martha), the proceedings are so gentle that no dramatic momentum materializes.
November 1, 2013
This is a glacially paced movie, filled with sickly picture postcard imagery that seems designed to put you to sleep.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
March 1, 2014
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
July 8, 2014
This sentimental Michael Caine drama is so dull that doctors could prescribe it to treat insomnia.

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

November 11, 2013
Dreary and depressing, it's so downmeat that even the considerable talents of Michael Caine cannot enliven the viewing.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
October 31, 2013
This dull, dawdling film, adapted from Françoise Dorner's novel "La Douceur Assassine," eventually succumbs to sentimentality.

"Last Love" starts out promising enough, but alas, it doesn't last.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
October 11, 2013
It almost feels like the film splits into two separate stories in the second half.
November 15, 2013
Last Love ambles into a finale that tries to resonate with something resembling tragic beauty, but never earns that right.
Full Review | Original Score: D
October 31, 2013
Nettelbeck ... strives to make Last Love a genuinely complex drama rooted in recognizable human behavior, and fails utterly in that effort.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
July 10, 2014
Ultimately something of a disappointment thanks to a frustrating script that lacks focus and isn't sure which story to tell.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 10, 2014
The film is a little too soft-centred to do justice to its own themes of bereavement, jealousy and family breakdown.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 11, 2013
"Last Love" sticks to a flaccid middle ground lacking any real drama or pathos.
