Meanwhile, Cecile has hired Pascal to follow her husband whom she believes is cheating. Cecile becomes a distraction for Pascal from his difficulties and he falls in love with her, leaving Agnes to find a fix on her own (an important event in "On the Run"), which is when she runs into Bruno.
"After the Life" works well on its own, but it makes the other two films better still by filling in their gaps and thus making the overall series a good deal more interesting. It completes what turns out to be an adroit series of films that explore the many facets of character and tone that simply can't be explored with a single narrative in a single genre. Starring Gilbert Melki, Dominique Blanc, Catherine Frot, Lucas Belvaux, Francois Morel and Ornella Muti. Directed and written by Lucas Belvaux. Produced by Patrick Sobelman and Diana Elbaum. A Magnolia release. Drama. French-language; subtitled. Unrated. Running time: 124 min.
