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 last 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.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
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, 03.22.2012
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, 03.21.2012
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, 03.22.2012
Ferrara movingly celebrates connection, cooking life down to just its barest essence: a man, a woman and a need.Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, 03.22.2012
