An unexpectedly excellent drama
9 December 2011 | by ArgemalucoSee all my reviews

I generally find the romantic dramas boring, because besides of the fact that they use to abuse of the same clichés over and over again, their intention of touching us or making us cry feels even more forced and dishonest when it is not well handled, which is what happens in most of the cases. However, I decided to watch Last Night because I had some free time. To my surprise, I ended up liking the movie very much because of its detailed narrative, brilliant performances and for daring itself to raise interesting questions about the marriage, the faithfulness, and the responsibilities from a couple.

One of the things I most liked from Last Night is that the screenplay does not stay on the simple level of a moralistic fable, but that instead of that, it involves us gradually on the game of emotions, circumstances and decisions which will influence in the couple's destiny. The rhythm from Last Night is slow (but never boring), and the spectators who expect to find the runaway melodrama from films like Closer and Eyes Wide Shut might feel unsatisfied with it. On the opposite, Last Night focuses its attention on the small details...Joanna's expression when she imagines the road her life could have taken if she had stayed in Paris; the poaching looks from Michael to Laura...what I wanna say with this is that Last Night is not a cathartic soap opera melodrama, but a methodic and intelligent characters study with an emotional minimalism and thematic clarity.

And we also have the extraordinary performances from Keira Knightley and Sam Worthington. I think that Knightley brought her best performance so far in here, because of the amazing conviction and aplomb she shows in her character. As for Worthington, he shows a much wider histrionic range than the one he displayed in the action and adventure films Terminator Salvation, Avatar and the remake of Clash of the Titans, and I hope to see him in more dramatic roles. Eva Mendes and Guillaume Canet also bring solid performances, but Knightley and Worthington definitely steal the show with their fantastic works.

Considering that the romantic dramas generally bore me, the fact that Last Night kept me fascinated from the beginning to the end, and left me thinking once it was over, is something remarkable. In conclusion, I consider this film worthy of an enthusiastic recommendation because, leaving a few moments of a slight pretension aside, this is a brilliantly written, solidly directed and perfectly acted film.
