Product Description

International screen legend Catherine Deneuve (A Christmas Tale, Persepolis, Dangerous Liaisons) delivers one of the most haunting performances of her career as a divorcee who is devastated when her 20-year-old son is killed in a car accident. But rather than grieve with her family, she instead focuses on her dead son s best friend (a breakthrough performance by Thomas Dumerchez of PARIS, I LOVE YOU) who survived the crash. Where does a heartbroken woman and mother draw the line between love and obsession? Guy Marchand (ENTRE NOUS) and Élodie Bouchez (THE DREAM LIFE OF ANGELS, THE L WORD) co-star in this powerful film- with a screenplay by writer/director Christophe Hornore (LOVE SONGS, DANS PARIS)- that Urban CineFile calls an intricate, intimate drama that pushes the emotional envelope. Fans of Deneuve and there are many will be delighted to find her in top form.

Catherine Deneuve turns in a magnificent performance as a heartbroken mother whom becomes obsessed with her son's death and his surviving friend. She really turns on the emotion here and it is heartbreaking to watch her inability to move on with her life. I believe the reason for her obsession with her son's best friend whom survived accident is because her character is also tragically lonely. In her despair and loneliness, she clings to the person closest whom can understand her grief. Surprisingly, it's not her daughter or former husband. But grieving people can do unexplainable things. I think this film is for anyone whom has experienced loss.

Another fine film from actor-turned director Gael Morel, "Après Lui" ("After Him") stars the always-luminous Catherine Deneuve (who seems to grow more and more beautiful as she grows older). She plays a woman (Camille) whose son is killed in an automobile accident while riding with his best friend Franck (Thomas Dumerchez).

In an effort to comfort Franck and better understand how the accident occurs, she begins spending more and more time with him, eventually trying to take over his life, much to the consternation of his family. At the same time she begins to withdraw from her own family, finally throwing her daughter (Elodie Bouchez) and grandson out of her house.

Deneuve gives an outstanding performance as a woman slipping from grief into obsession, as does Dumerchez. The rest of the cast are fine, especially Bouchez and Guy Marchand, as Camille's ex-husband.

Several of the scenes are chilling, such as when Camille wants Franck to recreate the accident, and when she refuses to hold her newborn grandson.

Intelligently written and crisply directed "Apres Lui" is a deeply disturbing, but highly entertaining film.

First of all, not everyone is a fan of foreign films, as they sort of have a certain flavor so different from American films. Having said that, this film is like that. I can see why people like it, and why people don't like it.

Catherine Deneuve is the divorced mother of Mathieu, a young man who is killed in a car accident. Mathieu's friend, Franck, was driving the car but managed to escape the accident unscathed. At the funeral, after everyone leaves, Catherine stays behind and finds her way to the location of the accident. There, she runs into Franck, who is placing flowers and did not feel he could go to the funeral and be welcome. Catherine takes him to her home where there is a post-funeral gathering, and everyone there shows their unhappiness and sometimes rage to see Franck among them.

Catherine on the other hand cannot spend enough time with Franck. She wants to spend time with him, she has him relay the details of the crash to her down to Matthieu's final moments, she wants to go to concerts with him, anything to spend time with Franck. And, he is lost and remorseful and sort of just accepts her presence and need to be around him. She goes so far as to inquire at the university how Franck's grades are and becomes determined that he not drop out of classes, which he has done since the accident. She finds him working for his father and tries to make the father understand that Franck needs to be at the university, but the father doesn't care and is happy for Franck's cheap labor to the family business. Desperate, Catherine then goes to Franck's mother and makes a deal with her whereby she will pay Franck a wage to work at her bookstore, while paying half of the wage to Franck's parents if they'll let him work for her.

I love Catherine Deneuve so definitely when I heard about this movie I wanted to love it. Deneuve turns out the usual magnificent performance however the movie itself is somewhat flawed. Firstly, I heard she has an affair with the best friend of her son who died in the accident yet when I went to watch it even again I never saw them even romantically kiss! I guess it was assumed but the subtlety wasn't bold enough for me. I liked it though for the fact that it was scripted uniquely and I love French films to begin with! If you want to watch an interesting film of a strange obsessed older woman towards a younger man whom was accidentally responsible for her son's death give it a go. However, if you expect a smoldering hot love scene you will be sadly disappointed.
