What we are left with at the end of After the Rehearsal, however, is the very strong sense of an artist who has sacrificed many lives for the sake of his art, and now wonders if perhaps one of those lives was his own.

There is something liberating in the very schematism of the project: he no longer needs to pretend that his mouthpieces are real people.

Although After the Rehearsal is blessed with three superb performances (especially Thulin, as a has-been actress who attacks the director for having abandoned her), it is trapped in its staginess.
