About the Movie

In a large apartment high above the city lives our couple. They’re in love. She’s a painter, he’s a successful actor. Just a normal afternoon - except that this isn’t a normal afternoon, for them or anyone else. Because tomorrow, at 4:44 am, give or take a few seconds, the world will come to an end far more rapidly than even the worst doomsayer could have imagined. The final meltdown will come, not without warnings, but with no means of escape. There will be no survivors. As always, there are those who, as their final cigarette is being lit and the blindfold tightened, will still hope against hope for some kind of reprieve. For a miracle. Not our two lovers. They - like the majority of the Earth’s population - have accepted their fate; the world is going to end.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Your last day - or, as it happens, the whole planet's last day - will be just like every other one. Mr. Ferrara makes this point with ingenuity and characteristic thrift by using found news footage to provide images of apocalypse. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Mar 22, 2012

Rotten: Ferrara's thin idea for a movie - life goes on, even when it's about to stop - would have been a lot better had he given his characters more to do. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Mar 21, 2012

Rotten: Ferrara doesn't give his protagonists room to do much beyond have arguments and sex (though the intimacy is shot well). – Scott Bowles, USA Today, Mar 22, 2012

Fresh: Ferrara movingly celebrates connection, cooking life down to just its barest essence: a man, a woman and a need. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Mar 22, 2012

Last Day on Earth….Couldn't Come Fast Enough

Wow……kept wondering HOW everyone would die, then after about 20 minutes wondered why everyone wouldn't JUST die. Another 3.99 iTunes credit shot to hell.

Dull, boring and slow

Knew the ending going in, but after about 10 minutes of this tripe, I was ready for the world to end.


4 minutes and 44 Seconds was more than enough
