"Well, you don’t love life itself. You love places, animals, people, memories, food, literature, music. And sometimes you meet someone...who requires all the love you have to give. And if you lose that someone, you think everything else is going to stop too. But everything else just keeps on going."
Aged American philosophy professor lives a lonely and self-contained life in Paris. Immersed in a deep reverie, he lost that something that he was searching for all his life - the meaning. Surrounded by memories, menacing to turn into hallucinations, he is inevitably moving towards the chasm: struggling against the absurd is even more difficult when you are alone. It seems that everything around is nothing but the decor: that’s how uninteresting the world became to him.
It seems that all that was important stayed in the past. And so it was, until one day he met someone on the bus, and this encounter changed everything.
Magnificent Michal Caine created a little delightful masterpiece on screen that makes you want to watch it again straight after walking out of the theatre.
"Mr. Morgan’s Last Love" - is a certain answer to gloomy "Love" by Michael Haneke.
This touching, heartfelt, beautiful story, filled with light sadness in pale shades, could have been shot only by a woman. The film is not about how one needs to live a life - it’s about the need of living it. And making it bright and saturated, making sure each moment is appreciated.
Fine and elegant reflection on loneliness, forgiveness and love, that give its spectator hope.
