Two-time Oscar-winner Michael Caine (The Dark Knight Rises, Inception) stars with Clémence Poésy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows I & II) in this richly nuanced, emotionally-charged story of lost souls, new-found hope and Last Love. Matthew Morgan (Caine) is a widowed, world-weary professor living alone in Paris. The cynical Matthew sees no meaningful future for himself – until he meets Pauline (Poésy), a free-spirited young dance instructor. From their first chance meeting, each instinctively provides what the other so desperately needs: someone to call family. Even as they both struggle to heal the wounds of their troubled pasts – including Matthew’s attempts to reconnect with his estranged children (Justin Kirk, Gillian Anderson) - the unlikely bond they form ultimately leads them to rediscover the joy that only family and true friendship can offer.

So you'll forgive me if I take issue with another reviewer who claimed that the scene where Michael Caine doesn't want anyone touching his wife who has died, IS a realistic one. Trust me.
Yes, it's a sad movie but it's also a necessary one. People need to learn how devastating it is when the most important person in your life is taken from you.
the cast brings the maturity of a
life time to their characters... and
maybe even a glimpse into their
own fears and hopes...
And if you are of "a certain age"
where you can easily remember
the actors in earlier roles in their
careers. Approach with a bit of
a guard on your heart. Somethings
are so real that though they are meant
as fiction... they feel like facts.
This movie was like taking an intimate trip into a few lives. Life. loss. Love. Family. Longing. Disappointment.
Anyway, I liked it. Not sure about the end .... but a place I will revisit.
I guess I felt like I was "in the room" when this story was taking place, as though somehow I was allowed to be there and see and feel and hear everything, but nobody else knew I was there. I really enjoyed it and will watch it again, and again.
My only issue with the film is Michael Caine's "American" accent ... all else is super.
