Movie Info

ANDRE GREGORY: BEFORE AND AFTER DINNER is a wonderful exploration of the life and work of groundbreaking director, actor and artist Andre Gregory. A witty and often hilariously funny raconteur, Gregory looks back on a career that spanned decades, shattered boundaries and established him as a cultural icon. He recalls the making of MY DINNER WITH ANDRE, the Louis Malle-directed classic in which he starred and co-wrote, reflects on his pivotal role in American theatre, dishes on his brief sojourn in Hollywood, and talks about the discovery that led him to question his own identity and life's work. Bringing us back and forth in time, Gregory looks not only at his life, but at the nature of art, love and the creative process. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Cindy Kleine (who is also his wife), ANDRE GREGORY: BEFORE AND AFTER DINNER is a brilliant portrait of a modern renaissance man. (c) Cinema Guild

The film sees the creative process as a sacrament in which the play's not the thing but the getting there is.

"Before and After Dinner" is not fully satisfying, but it does offer a rich portrait of the artist as an ever-seeking explorer.

A fond documentary made by Gregory's wife, Cindy Kleine.

A theater director's wife directs an admiring diary, as he rehearses an Ibsen play. Andre Gregory fancies himself a shaman but just comes off as an irrepressible raconteur.

The best scenes here show the retired thespian rehearsing a workshop production of Ibsen's The Master Builder with his friend, frequent collaborator, and Dinner costar Wallace Shawn.
