Poignant performances - a movie that really stayed with me
2 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As an avid movie-goer and Eric Schaeffer fan, I knew it would be difficult to go into "After Fall, Winter" without a biased viewpoint. Schaeffer's writing is not only comedic, but still so passionate and provocative at the same time and when I learned he would be reviving the role of Michael Shiver years later, I was really thrilled.

But I went into the premiere with an open mind anyway and was truly blown away by the performances and the storyline. While "Fall" tells the story of the sexy, scandalous, yet forbidden romance between Michael and Sarah, "After Fall, Winter" goes down a much darker road, exposing Michael at his most vulnerable stage in life and his journey in the pursuit of love, success, and happiness.

Schaeffer and his French leading lady, Lizzie Brochere, were masterful on the screen together. Their interaction was so honest and direct and their dialog wasn't in any way sugarcoated. Schaeffer always has a way of remaining truthful to his audience, revealing that life can be wrapped up in secrets, love, humor, pain, death - a quality of writing that I really appreciate.

Overall, an authentic, moving film that will stay with me long after.
