Audience Reviews for The Last Kiss (El Último Beso)

    NO, NO, NO NO NO NOOOO!!! What a repulsive, sickening, superficial, false, clichéd, overacted, horribly written, awfully paced and immature film. Are we supposed to swallow at the end not only a marriage that was built on lies, but also that now it is the turn's wife to cheat? He never deserved forgiveness. The fact that he "grew up" and learned the importance of faithfulness, and her daughter being the most beautiful girl she had ever seen because she resembled her wife and all of that unbelievable and far-fetched affirmations, goes beyond any possible belief. Welcome to a roller-coaster full of exaggerated emotions, irrationality, non-existent humor and a set of Italian moral values which claims that: - Having sex with a lover, telling your <b>pregnant</b> wife to <i>her face</i> that you did not have sex with her and that you didn't do anything beyond a kiss, is OK. - The only way in which you can find "a meaning in your life" is variety and the evasion of monotony: a) escaping from your house, b) abandoning your family and c) traveling through the world with no previous calculation of the possible consequences, like if everything would turn out all right. But of cooouuurrsseee!! We are not supposed to take everything so seriously because this is a comedy, right? Ha! Since when comedies stopped being transmitter of values to society? You gotta be kidding to yourself. That's the typical western mentality. This film only achieved to emphasize that the only process of growth that men can have is being unfaithful once so that they can realize the true value of their wives as women and as <u>human beings with feelings</u>. No wonder why women today think that all men are the same, which is a lie. I hate you, Muccino! The reason I saw this was that I was expecting something valuable in your Italian roots considering how bad were your overtly-sentimental Will Smith "drama" films. Well, who would say you had done better in Hollywood? Damn! 36/100

    <a href="http://tinypic.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i32.tinypic.com/27yrew0.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> for sexuality, language, drug use. L'Ultimo Bacio was a movie, in which some men will recognize themselves in. The movie was based on what most men feel as they are approaching, the age of 30, where its expected to grow up, marry or start a family. These are important decisions and sometimes they are not ready in making them yet. So they start doing the most funny things, which sometimes don't have happy ending at all. I highly recommend this movie. Love it.

    this is a great movie! the american version doesn't even compare since it was homogeonized and removed the pain and true comedy. strong performances by all actors. i found the ending truly funny.

    Simultaneously heart-breaking and very funny. Pleasant, charming, genuinely romantic and oh-so-Italian. Tackles the topic of relationships in such a straightforward, emotionally honest manner that by the end, it's impossible to ascertain whether the film is, at its core, deeply pessimistic or quietly hopeful. Fits perfectly into that new genre that seems intent upon examining whether marriage - or even love - are the answers to everything.
