Break-Up School: Joachim Lafosse’s AFTER LOVE Has Bérénice Bejo vs Cédric Kahn

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

After eons of human existence, or a short hop since the Sexual Revolution of the 1960’s, we still haven’t learned how to do two things well: Die or Divorce. Even with Gwyneth Paltrow’s co-opted “Conscious Uncoupling,” the recent so-called shock split of Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, that followed Ben & Jen, and Brangelina. Life, art, and pop culture peel back one common truth: we don’t know what to do after Love. DSC00570 ∏Fabrizio MalteseEnter a new film by director Joachim Lafosse, AFTER LOVE, pitting THE ARTIST’s Bérénice Bejo against Cédric Kahn. It’s an exploration of this very subject. And a love-letter to all the ex-es out there looking to refit the broken pieces of their domestic bliss.

[Original title is L’Economie du couple.]AfterLove_US_poster_675x1000What They’re Officially Saying About It

“From the director of Our Children Joachim Fosse, comes the story of Boris (Cédric Kahn) and Marie (Bérénice Bejo), a couple who have decided to separate after 15 years together. They have two girls that they adore, but tensions rise as cash-strapped Boris continues to live in the family home. Neither of the two is willing to compromise, making their apartment a war zone.

AFTER LOVE captures with great magnitude, the painfully intimate, harrowingly drama, emotional and financial complexities of a separation, at the end of a long love story.”
