An intensive journey
13 August 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

As the only review of Après Lui at the moment is rather a negative one, I feel the need to say that this film is an intensive journey through the pain of human loss and the desperate search to regain a grip on life. Nobody understands Camille, which leads to sad and often lonely moments. This film is beautifully written and directed. Gaël Morel is a fine director who deserves a wide audience for his work. His leading actress Catherine Deneuve is impressive, but this is also the case with promising young actors as Dumerchez (who also played the lead in Morel's Le Clan) and Jolivet. On the soundtrack Beth Gibbons with the song Mysteries which brings back happy memories for someone who isn't there anymore. An English subtitled DVD is now available in Australia.
