Each movie casts light on the others. And after watching all three, a profound blending of the stories percolates in your head.

If On the Run is the most riveting and shocking of the three, and An Amazing Couple the funniest and most engaging, After the Life is the most touching and dramatic.

[Blanc's] performance is as chilling as Lee Remick's in Days of Wine and Roses.

While it functions independently as a sad, ultimately moving portrait of a deeply codependent couple, the film also emerges as the most richly resonant of The Trilogy.

The Trilogy's amazing partnership is Agnès and Pascal's. With After the Life's tango of enabler and addict, Belvaux finally delivers emotional resonance.

If you have committed to the entire project ... this chapter leaves you not only with a sense of completion but of an ascension to a hard-won grace.

Watching junkies screaming for their fix tends to get very tired very quickly, but Blanc holds the screen with furtive intensity.

The fine performances by Blanc and Melki give Belvaux' whole clever undertaking some needed weight.

The most somber installment in Lucas Belvaux's Trilogy, this melodrama of addiction and marital malaise is also the most successful.

Each film stands satisfyingly on its own as a genre piece, but the triplex provides added understanding of character and consequence.

Movies, particularly post-Spielbergian Hollywood product, tend to steer your frame of reference with fascistic discipline. Here, delivered in a shiftable tripartite sequence, is a movie experience you can shape yourself.
