After Love

L'Economie Du Couple

JOACHIM LAFOSSE
France, Belgium, 2016
100 minutes, Color
Official website

Marie and Boris seem to have it all—a modern home; sparkling, loving twin girls; good looks—but this is all they have. We enter the marriage mid-crisis, and thanks to a camera that never wavers from its domestic witness, we see it through to the end in this beautifully crafted and delicately acted chamber piece. Boris (Cédric Kahn) is a loving father who has become an unwelcome stranger in his own home, a bull in an all-girl china shop. Marie (Bérénice Bejo) wishes he would stick to his own days and ultimately move out. The family man routine becomes a joust, the children are subtly, inexorably weaponized, and still we as viewers are locked in the frame of a home we've by now inhabited. The film's French title, L'economie du couple, exactly captures the tension between capital and labor in marriage, an equation of give and take.—Judy Bloch

In French with English subtitles
