About as American as bangers and mash! And about as depressing as you can get.
9 January 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Before I get to the review, I should point out something as a bit of a warning. "Last Love" is an existential film that is often rather depressing. It also is about bad relationships and loss. I am not against films like these and sometimes I even LIKE a depressing film. However, if you are already depressed, I would avoid watching the film--as it might make it a lot worse. Seriously!

As I sat and watched "Last Love", I couldn't help but think repeatedly 'why did they make Michael Caine an American in this film?!'. And, frankly, I assume most Americans would wonder this, as he sounded just like a Brit trying (in vain) to sound American. Weren't there any folks on the set who noticed this? And, is this perhaps Caine's attempt to punish the Americans for casting Dick Van Dyke as an Englishman in "Mary Poppins"?! All I know is that casting him as a Brit would have sure made a lot more sense!

The story begins with Matthew Morgan (Caine) at his wife's bedside after she dies. Next you see that although time has passed, Caine has, in effect, died as well though his body still functions. He couldn't care less about his appearance or even which day it was and is on the verge of suicide. However, a chance encounter with a vivacious (but not overly so) lady on a bus (Clémence Poésy) leads him to re-think his life and his desire to die. However, what happens next is something I pretty much assume you'll not expect. Just watch the film and you'll see what I mean.

What follows is a study of a family which cannot communicate as well as a total stranger (Poésy) whose motivations for being involved with them are strange and inexplicable. Some may like it, as the acting is good, but I found the characters to be incredibly selfish and a difficult to like or care about. Obviously some others felt differently, as the reviews for this feel bad movie are mostly very positive. And, perhaps the film could serve as a warning to folks NOT to be like the idiots in this depressing film. Overall, some very good acting but a film that is just awful to watch.

While I assume that big-name stars don't usually read their own reviews on IMDb, I do hope that IF Mr. Caine actually reads this that he strongly takes to heart my suggestion that he NEVER attempts an American accent again. I would have thought his awkward accent in "Hurry Sundown" back in 1967 would have cured him of this, but "Last Love" is proof he was willing to inexplicably try it again. He is a wonderful actor---just not a master of accents and there's nothing wrong with that.
