Storyline

With the loss of a beloved mother and wife still fresh and raw in their memory, the dejected Roberto and his teenage daughter, Alejandra, flee the coastal Puerto Vallarta to start anew in bustling Mexico City. But, there--even though Roberto has already a job as a chef lined up for him, and Alejandra seems to have no trouble fitting in at her new school--unforeseen problems lead both to a tense situation which will, inevitably, spiral out of control. In the end, life is full of fresh beginnings; however, on the other hand, making a life change can be very intimidating, especially when you have lost everything. Written by Nick Riganas

A pessimist but realistic and universal vision of the world, in which a simple action in the social media can make a durable impact in anyone's life
27 November 2016 | by losindiscretoscineSee all my reviews

Awarded with the prize "un certain regard" at the Cannes Film Festival, Michel Franco's second film deals with a social problem largely present in cinema: school bullying in the digital age. The shooting and the framing, specially the fix off-camera shots, as well as the long silences, immerse the public into the deepness of Alejandra's emotions (superbly played by Tessa Ia). Rough, bitter and cold, the harassment scenes come one after another and we enter a kind of vicious circle in which freedom does not exist. Any type of rationality, understanding or communication are in vain in this compulsory contemplation of violence whose origin is unknown by the victim and, maybe, even by the aggressors. The lack of communication and the sobriety of the photography provide more realism to the movie. Finally, the long sequence shot at the ending enhances the beauty and coldness of the whole. With "After Lucia", Michel France offers at the same time a pessimist but realistic and universal vision of the world, in which a simple action in the social media can make a durable impact in anyone's life.
