After Love (L’Economie du couple) directed by Joachim Lafosse (France/Belgium, 2016, 100 min.). In French and English with English subtitles.
Bernice Bejo (The Artist) and director-turned-actor Cedric Kahn star in this intimate family drama from filmmaker Joachim Lafosse (Our Children). After 15 years together, Boris and Marie have fallen out of love. After Love depicts the couple’s struggle to divide their assets and sort out custody of their two little girls, a task that is complicated by the fact that they aren’t married. Bejo and Kahn give unforgettable performances in the “intelligent, compassionate, and challenging” film (The Guardian). It screened in the Director’s Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival.
“This is the most poignant and perceptive thing that LaFosse has ever made, and therefore also the most painful…for all of the heartache that runs through this deeply terrifying movie, we’re ultimately left with a clearer sense of the hope that made it possible in the first place.” – David Erlich, Indiewire
