Last Love
A widowed, elderly man living in Paris meets a lovely young dance instructor... what will happen next? Well, not what you're thinking. At least early on, writer/director Sandra Nettelbeck's "Last Love" is actually fairly refreshing. It's the kind of intimate drama that's becoming rarer, one that doesn't hurry to meet plot points, but instead invests time in character and setting, so that at least for a little while, the audience falls into the world of the movie like wearing an old sweater. But that mood only lasts so long and unfortunately for all of Nettelbeck's smart choices early on, she can't navigate out of them, and by time the third act arrives, the film turns harshly toward cliché, convenience and melodrama to disastrous effect.

Michael Caine routinely threatens retirement, and there's always the possibility that his next film will be his last (especially after the actor turned 80 last week; read our pick of his best performances here), but frankly we don't see it coming any time soon, nor can we imagine him ever saying no to Christopher Nolan. As well as Louis Leterrier's "Now You See Me," Caine has Sandra Nettelbeck's ("Mostly Martha," "Helen") "Mr. Morgan's Last Love" set for release in 2013, and now we have some new posters, images and one very interesting new update about the project

It looks like Michael Caine is taking some time between helping out Batman in "The Dark Knight Rises" and hanging with magicians in "Now You See Me" to soak up some French culture.
