Beautiful. The movie is poetic asking deep questions. Ends for speculation. Cruel Mom.
Could have been interesting, but wasn't

Good cast, bad movie. I thought it too open ended. Some scenes don't make sense..

A very european approach to filmmaking. Leaves unanswered questions, but is enjoyable
After.Life is a 2009 American horror film starring Liam Neeson, Christina Ricci and Justin Long, directed by Agnieszka Wójtowicz-Vosloo from her original screenplay.
Middle school teacher, Anna Taylor (Christina Ricci), is unhappy with her life. She has a selfish, unloving mother, Beatrice (Celia Weston), and a boyfriend, Paul Coleman (Justin Long), who cannot seem to figure her out.
A corpse is in the process of being prepared for a funeral; the man preparing the corpse speaks to it mysteriously, but cheerily. He takes a photo, and the scene fades. Anna is introduced along with Paul, as they finish having sex. She appears unaffected and cold, while he is frustrated with her lack of interest. Later, after school, a young boy she teaches, Jack (Chandler Canterbury), asks her as she is leaving to the funeral, if he could come along. He says his mother, who had neglected to pick him up from school, would not mind. Confused, she attempts to explain that funerals are a personal occasion....
