The Last Time
4 April 2008 | by (Orlando, Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

At first glance, our two stars of Born Winner, Pericles (Joe Dallesandro) and Sandro (Massimo Ranieri) do not appear to be Born Winners at all.

Sandro, played by the charmingly handsome Ranieri, is unceremoniously dismissed from his job after a party he is catering for is robbed at gunpoint. Shortly after, he fails in his attempts to find a new job.

Fate, or what you will, allows a piece of paper with Sandro's address to fall into Pericles' hands. Pericles is the man who committed the robbery at Sandro's last catering job, causing Sandro's dismissal.

Soon, our Pericles, who is the gorgeous Joe Dallesandro incarnate, is living with the newly directionless Sandro; Pericles soon takes Sandro through the fast, thrilling, dangerous, and fleeting, swiftly fleeting, curves of life.

As Pericles tries to help Sandro earn a living as a petty thief, Sandro tries to help Pericles learn to love life again.

Joe Dallesandro is remarkable as an ex-championship motorcyclist whose career prematurely ended after a nasty accident.

The fates of Pericles and Sandro leave an indelible mark upon the viewers; as the other poster commented, the curves are muddled, but they are muddled with good cause.

This Italian film was originally entitled L'Ultima Volta, which translates to The Last Time.
