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
When you see the pictures in Sir Michael Caine's apartment, you also see a framed Batman logo, Caine played Alfred in the Dark Knight trilogy, and Hans Zimmer also does the movie score for this movie, as well as the aforementioned trilogy. See more »

it's an unpretentious fine film, which can be seen with pleasure.
Interpreters are beautiful and the dialogues are very pleasant.
As it is usual, authors have some difficult in finding an end for the movie, being possible a few of them. Probably due to this, the last half hour is a bit inconsistent: Pauline redirects her love from father to son a bit too quickly.
Also illogical is that people go from Paris to St. Malo and vice versa as if it was the next town in the map, or as if they had taken helicopters instead of driving or taking a taxi.
Michael Caine exhibits his 80 years splendidly. I am astonished seeing that he will act at least in three films this year.
