Consensus: Last Love benefits from a typically strong Michael Caine performance, but it's ultimately too mawkish and dawdling to make much impact.

This sentimental Michael Caine drama is so dull that doctors could prescribe it to treat insomnia.

New York Times

This dull, dawdling film, adapted from Françoise Dorner's novel "La Douceur Assassine," eventually succumbs to sentimentality.

Caine's brave attempt to speak pigeon French with an American accent produces some unintentionally comedic moments. Every time he says 'Merci', for example, you'll think he's spotted a horse. As in "mare, see!"

This somber work about the worthiness of living has little life in it.

Not much happens in Sandra Nettelbeck's intimate family drama, but its well-drawn connections between lonely souls make an impact nonetheless.

Sir Michael Caine is London personified, a British movie icon with one of the most distinctive voices in cinema. So why on earth would you mis-cast him as an American in Paris with a totally implausible accent?

"Last Love" starts out promising enough, but alas, it doesn't last.

Nettelbeck ... strives to make Last Love a genuinely complex drama rooted in recognizable human behavior, and fails utterly in that effort.

A melancholic cross between Venus and Goodbye, Mr Chips, which could have been more enticingly entitled Venus and Chips.
