A wonderfully funny and enchanting portrail of a true moment of serendipity, set in the streets of Brooklyn.
With its musical interjections from the mesmerising Nicole Beharie, who plays a pastor’s daughter, it allows the viewer chance to absorb the ‘left-brain’ creativity that is an intrinsic element of the attraction between her and the German business man, played by Ken Duken. Having deservedly won a plethora of awards including two Black Reels, ‘My Last Day Without You’ stands out, for not only its delicate artifice, but its fleeting moments of hilarity and unique character portrail.
For me the most appealing element of the films ‘message’, if you like, is that it represents courage and how people embrace it in order to break through the barriers of communication and faith, that entraps them.
I’m all for serendipity, courage and communication, so I’m sold on this one.
