After Him


aka: Après lui
France 2007, 92 minutes
Dir. Gaël Morel
In French with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama


Aroview: Unsettlingly intimate French drama stars Catherine Deneuve as a devastated mother who obsessively channels her dead son by using his best friend as a replacement.

Takes a little while to break free of routine suffering before emerging as a perturbing study of post-traumatic coping mechanisms and psychological motives, with Deneuve deftly conveying a blend of maternal love and grief-driven madness. May not be to everyone's tastes, but nonetheless effective as a dramatic diagram of grief and its potential consequences.
