Life After All appears to be a part of a series of films entitled Tales from the Orphanage. Clearly a cheery start to any uplifting drama. To begin with, it was quite obvious that this was a TV movie, in terms of appearance and acting. Not that television doesn't produce fine movies but that this never had the appeal of a feature film. I was never convinced by the actors in this film particularly the young boy who plays the little brother. My annoyance with his character grew with each passing scene. Furthermore I just felt that the movie dragged on and caught myself on the remote with my finger over the fast forward button a couple of times. I've decided that any movie in which I desperately want to fast forward to the end cannot be a good film. I would stay away from this unless you are looking to improve upon your French or English (via the subtitles.) I'll give it a 3 out of 10.
