Apres la Vie

Trilogy 3: After Life

(France/Belgium, 2002, 125 minutes)

A police detective married to a drug addict is torn between corrupting himself for his wife’s sake or destroying his marriage.
One of three interconnected films written and directed by Lucas Belvaux starring the same set of characters; each film is in a different genre, its lead characters becoming supporting characters in the other two films. This one, the best of the three, is a powerful, slow-burning melodrama with thriller elements and two superb lead performances.
