      Desson Thomson Washington Post Each movie casts light on the others. And after watching all three, a profound blending of the stories percolates in your head. Jun 18, 2004 Full Review Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune 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. Rated: 4/4 Jun 3, 2004 Full Review Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle [Blanc's] performance is as chilling as Lee Remick's in Days of Wine and Roses. Rated: 3/4 May 28, 2004 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 3/5 Jan 9, 2006 Full Review James Verniere Boston Herald Rated: 3/4 Jul 18, 2005 Full Review Daniel Kasman d+kaz. intelligent movie reviews Rated: D+ Aug 7, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Génial. Ce sont pas trois films qui raconte une histoire, c'est une histoire filmé 3 fois. Ça se coupe, ça se recoupe et surtout ça se découpe. Les opinions sur certains personnages changent d'un film à l'autre, des personnages qui passent de protagoniste à secondaire: j'insiste, c'est génial. Et pris séparément? Oui c'est possible de n'en voir qu'un des trois: comme c'est possible de manger un éclair au chocolat sans toucher au chocolat... ;-) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member The best among the three... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A mildly disappointing end to a superb trilogy. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Poor mans three colours trilogy Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Please, inject smack into my eye balls. I mean the 1st of these three started so interesting and it ends up like this. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member You know it's hard out here for a lonely disgraced cop in this melodrama, the third in a trilogy of interlocking stories and themes. As with all three films, the whole is greater than its parts, but on its own, 'After Life' is heartfelt, intimate, and elegiac.
