Apres lui

Director: Gaël Morel

France • 2007 • 92 minutes

Gaël Morel first burst onto the scene as an actor in Andre Techine’s Les Roseaux sauvages and later forged a reputation as a director in his own right with À toute vitesse. Apres lui marks his second collaboration with Christophe Honore (Le Clan) and explores a central theme that appears in both their work — grief and mourning.
Catherine Deneuve stars as a mother who becomes obsessed with her son’s best friend after her child dies unexpectedly in an accident. It is a pleasure to see Deneuve tackling such a different role, opening all registers of motherly love and desperation in her difficult journey to come to terms with a loss that goes against all natural laws.
