Lucas Belvaux – Après la Vie AKA After Life [Trilogy No. 3] (2002)

In The Trilogy, three different but parallel stories unfold revealing the lives of a husband and wife, a policeman and his drug-addicted wife, and a prison escapee and his friends. The characters wander in and out of three films where we see them switch from leading men and women to supporting actors. The three films, all of different genres (the first is a thriller, the second a comedy and the third a melodrama), provide the same action from different angles and perspectives. Each film can be appreciated on its own, but together they form a cohesive whole allowing the viewer to gain a deeper understanding of the characters. Although it is reminiscent of Kurosawa’s Rashomon and Balzac’s novels, Lucas Belvaux’s project is unprecedented.

Part.3 For years, Pascal, a cop, has been secretly using his connections to find morphine for his drug-addicted wife Agnès. His actions catch up with him as he is blackmailed by his sources: he won’t get any more drugs until he delivers Bruno, an escaped convict. Pascal faces a moral dilemma and is unable to provide morphine to Agnès. Agnès’ friend Cécile asks him to investigate her husband Alain. As Pascal focuses his attention on Bruno, Cécile, and Alain, Agnès goes out to find drugs and stumbles on Bruno who helps her.
