They discover they have been left penniless and are forced to move into their estranged aunt Aurelia's (Adriana Barraza) modest but lively home in the Latino-centric Boyle Heights neighborhood of East LA.

Matt G (br) wrote: Parents dealing with the sudden death of a small child is neither a fun or easy place to be. However, this devastating premise is handled subtle beauty and penetrating honesty that allows for immense grief while managing sensitive and real humor. The screenplay and direction slowly lay out the details of this world, while touching on the impact seemingly innocuous daily occurrences have on one's life after such a tragedy. A heartbreaking study of anguish in modern times.

Graham G (mx) wrote: 'After Life's' simplicity is its beauty. This is a film that tackles a complex philosophical dilemma without alienating the audience on any level. Not since 'White Dog' has a film been so successful in this regard. Moments of documentary-style realism (nearly all of the subjects were real people reflecting on their own happiest memories) mesh with paired-down fantasy to create a film that is so full of human warmth and honesty. Definitely a contender with Hana-bi for the finest Japanese film of the ninties.

Andrew I (br) wrote: A nice idea for a plot, realised reasonably well. This would benefit massively from digital remastering as the audio was very mumbled and the picture wasn't too sharp either. Maybe even a remake would be a good idea. It'd probably be an easy 7/10 then, but as it stands 6.75/10

Noname (ca) wrote: Al Pacino in a true story based police crime drama. Sounds very interesting indeed and thats why i gave this classic movie a chance. The performances are as always with Pacino absolutely stunning. Probably a top 5 actor ever for me and its always amusing watch him acting. The story of this movie follows the NY cop Serpico , an honest cop in a corrupt police department.. it was a nice drama but i felt it kinda dragged sometimes but still good overall. Its not the best movie with Pacino but his performance makes it worth seeing and defiently a cop movie not to miss.
Tim M (kr) wrote: My 'Big Fat Greek Wedding' may or may not have inspired Jersey Shore, but Greeks and Italians alike have quite a bit in common. This family friendly rom-com has enough laughs, mainly from the parents played by Michael Constantine and Lainie Kazan. A lot of stereotypical Greek humor, some one liners that are just flat funny, and the story here is engaging. John Corbett plays himself as he does in everything he's every been in and writer and lead actress Nia Vardalos does her best. She's able to give her supporting cast depth and keeping it just over 90 minutes the film doesn't outlast its welcome. Final Score 6.9/10
