Donald J. Levit
ReelTalk Movie Reviews

To its own amateur band, this film's whimsical dance of death zeroes in on what is wonderful in life and the people who live it and, in death, stay on in memory.

The film's strength lies in the way these interviews inevitably trigger our own thoughts on the matter.

How people remember, how they fictionalize their memories, and the nature of memory itself are all part of the fascination of After Life.

When his instincts are just right Kore-eda has both the perfect technique and the perfect touch for suggesting (without explicitly defining) the immanence of human experience.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

With its meditative, humanistic tone, After Life is the cinematic reminiscence of limbo itself, this transitional space of contemplation and nostalgia.

A true oxymoron, at once endlessly fascinating and terminally dull.
