Too depressing

It's tough to decide whether or not to recommend watching Last Love. If you're a Michael Caine fan, you'll probably want to watch him do some incredible acting, but you won't want to watch him in such a sad story. If you happen to like sad movies, you might want to give it a try. But, as much as I love Michael Caine, I could have skipped watching this movie. It was just too depressing.

The beginning of the film falls under the "what does it take" category of the Academy Awards. Michael Caine is sitting at his wife's deathbed, and after she's passed away, outsiders come in to try and remove him from the room. He fights them, wanting to stay with his companion as long as possible. I don't think it's possible to watch this scene without bursting into tears, and I'm sure Michael was just as baffled as I was that he wasn't nominated for an Oscar that year. Believe it or not, the rest of the film isn't really any more uplifting.

Jane Alexander plays Michael's late wife, and she visits him several times throughout the film, talking to him and giving him advice on his attempt to start a new chapter. He meets a French dance teacher, Clemence Poesy, and strikes up a friendship. The audience is supposed to realize that his unrequited crush is doomed to remain unrequited, because unless Michelle has grandfather-issues, she won't look at him as a romantic prospect. I still think of Michael Caine as how he looked decades ago, so I didn't understand why it was an unrequited crush in the first place.

In any case, this is an incredibly depressing film about how a man tries to continue living even though he's lost his life companion. Use your own judgement to see if you're able to sit through it.

Kiddy Warning: Obviously, you have control over your own children. However, due to depressing and adult content, I wouldn't let my kids watch it.

A hard to define relationship if there ever was one

There is no end in sight to curiosity about unlikely couples with decades of age difference. Well here the couple finding themselves in a very hard to define type of relationship consist of the actors Michael Caine, age 78 at the time of the filming, and the lovely and soulful Clémence Poésy, age 29 respectively. This film is quite educational for people who keep wondering what is possible and what definitely is not achievable in a relationship with almost 50 years age difference, and what a couple like this might actually talk about between them and what not. The acting is absolutely world class even in the smallest roles, let alone the lead couple who give their particular situation and the twists it will lead them to amazing credibility. The international production has resulted in many impressive shooting locations beautifully captured on film, yes real film. Both intrinsically sad and optimistic about the power of love in spite of everything, Last Love will leave you in tears but in a good way. Do yourself a favor and see it, you might learn a thing or two about life you didn't know before.

Loved it. Worth watching!

I loved this film. Found it late, but good is good no matter when it turns up. Acting is top notch, and I like the story-line too. Don't agree with those who think it's "soppy". It is sad, true, and engaging. I was drawn into Caine's lost emotional world. Pauline is the lamp that lights his way. I didn't want it to end when it did. Life is often untidy, and difficult to understand, which made it believable.
