Critic Reviews for After Love (L'économie du couple)
It's a lot of skill and talent expended on a spat a good lawyer could probably have sorted out during the opening credit sequence. Instead Lafosse offers a lot of the "after," and none of the "love."
For most of its running time, director and co-writer Joachim Lafosse gives the impression that he's drilled a hole into the side of a married couple's home in order to afford audiences an unmediated, worm's eye view of their gradual dissolution.
Messy and ungovernable at its strongest, Lafosse's film is a story of heartbreak and real estate and, not least, money, viewed from within the still-smoldering ruins.
Intimacy might be a source of irritation, but in After Love it can be downright excruciating.
Lafosse, along with actors Bérénice Bejo and Cédric Kahn, infuse the film with a brutal honesty that makes it, if not exactly enjoyable, certainly compelling.
