Storyline

Matthew Morgan is a retired American professor in his 80s, a widower. He lives in Paris and speaks no French. Since his wife's death, he's marking time. His curiosity is piqued when he meets Pauline Laubie, half his age, a dance instructor. She's also a solitary person but wants the connection of family. She believes she's found that in Matthew, and she attends to him during a hospitalization. When his two adult children arrive from the U.S. to check on their father, they are certain Pauline is a gold digger, and she's confounded by the distance between father and children. The daughter heads home, the son remains. Is there any way that Pauline fits in? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Mr. Morgan's Last Love (2013)

I have to say, this is a way above average drama. There's a lot to like about this film: 1- Acting: It was stunning. I mean Michael Caine, what do you expect! Clémence Poésy's performance was not bad either. 2- Cinematography: The film was beautifully photographed. Actually, this is one of the very few films this year that were shot on actual film. We should learn to appreciate every single detail about this dying medium. Film in itself is magical and artistic. We should learn to appreciate the randomness of the grain, the color latitude, the dynamic range, all the nuances. 3- Michael Caine's horrible fake American accent. 4- Poésy's eyes when she smiles. She's adorable!

There isn't much to not like about the film. The plot thickens towards the end of the film and the pacing gets a bit messed up. Maybe that's a good thing, I don't know. My overall impression was very good. I loved it! 7.5/10
