Michel Cote is Brilliant
19 January 2002 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of viewing this film with a group of friends. I had never heard of Michel Côté, Sylvie Léonard or the director Gabriel Pelletier. But after seeing "Vie après l'amour, La - Life After Love," I'm impressed. As a filmmaker myself, I know that comedies are the most difficult films to make.

Michel Côté is truly a genius in every sense of the word. This film deserves to be seen. I could not believe the laughter of everyone while they watched this film. It was even more gratifying since no one understood French. They laughed from the brilliant opening scene through the entire film and were moved by the ending scene. It's not perfect, but the undiscovered talents, in the USA, of Michel Côté and all of the actors is an atrocity. Alliance Atlantis should have released this film in the United States.

Since watching this film, all of my friends have been ordering other movies by Michel Côté and director Gabriel Pelletier. Also, Ken Scott should be applauded for the script.
