"After the Life...is the most tolerable of The Trilogy's entries."
January 30, 2004
To get the desired effect, you have to see all three films, none of which is much worth seeing by itself.

April 10, 2004
The most intimate and moving of the three films. What's most compelling about this installment is its frank exploration of a couple mired in co-dependency.
May 7, 2004
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.
November 29, 2003
A compelling drama which forms an essential part of Lucas Belvaux's audacious series.

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

This is a harrowing story of addiction and co-dependence, strong and quite moving.

It's an engrossing experience, although at least one story strand...doesn't pass muster when viewed a second time.

"After Life," takes a more somber tone than the first two films [in "The Trilogy"]

The Trilogy's narrative structure may be considered a gimmick, but it's one that is thoroughly compelling... as all the pieces of the puzzle fall into place.

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.
January 29, 2004
Each film stands satisfyingly on its own as a genre piece, but the triplex provides added understanding of character and consequence.
January 30, 2004
We're treated to two smashing performances from Morel and Blanc.

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.

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.

Each movie casts light on the others. And after watching all three, a profound blending of the stories percolates in your head.
February 16, 2004
One particularly brilliant achievement of Belvaux's is the intimate access it affords to every character's story as bit players and central figures change roles.

Even if you refuse to play Belvaux's Choose Your Own Adventure, do not ignore these performances.
