Storyline

Setting: the singles scene at a futuristic pick-up bar. Portrait of guys and dolls on the make, fortified by martinis or cosmos as they desperately try to connect with another willing partner. They're all hungry;you can practically taste it. But it's a meat market with a difference. For most, their only contact with the opposite sex is a phone line and TV monitor. Definitely a safety net for those with second thought;till between the turn-ons and put downs, they emerge from their chat rooms to meet the perfect match. Yet these swinging singles aren't Brittany or Brad wannabees. They're seniors of uncertain age, muddling through the last chapter of their lives, warding off loneliness as they search for love and companionship and sex. Until... Written by David Drach

Sex in the City-30 Years Later
25 March 2005 | by (NYS) – See all my reviews

Amazingly perceptive. I think the director must have peeked into the lives of so many of my single friends (of any age). He's captured their sense of loss—not so much lack of sex as the absence of companionship. Just loneliness, pure and simple. And as shown here, it's the lengths people go to reach out to others that makes LAST CALL so poignant and unforgettable.

Insightful as it is, I also found the film's bittersweet realism a bit unsettling at times—like watching a sneak preview of "Sex in the City-30 Years Later." In less-skilled hands, this might have been a snide sitcom or soppy soap. (It's not at all.) From yet another perspective, its surprisingly surreal elements, both in direction and camera work, lift it into that rarefied ozone layer of a classic Art film (in English but with a Gallic sensibility).

Despite the short length, LAST CALL achieves what standard features rarely accomplish in over twice the running time. I was tremendously moved. You will be too
