Hereafter (2010)

As mentioned in the film, death is a sensitive matter. Different people, different views about what happens next. We are so much accustomed to action movies, with turn plots, with action that when a movie comes with an unanswered question by its own nature, we just feel disappointed. Hereafter is not like any of the previous Clint Eastwood movies.

For this film, one has to give credits to also to the script by Peter Morgan. The entire cast was excellent, I adored Matt Damon and Cécile De France, even Frankie McLaren (playing the 12-year old kid) with such a difficult role for its age.

If one wants to enjoy the film, he/she must see it with an open mind and without expecting a solution to the eternal question. Who knows, then some things may make sense 🙂

My rating: 08/10


  1. I am biased, in favour of every film that Clint Eastwood directs, so of course I enjoyed this film, too, although it was not among his best. The best comment I read about it was “this is a film which uses the subject of death, in order to speak about life”.

    If you do see it, so not miss the beginning: the opening scene is really very impressive and lifelike.

  2. I agree! “Hereafter” isn’t typical Eastwood, but neither was “Gran Torino” although it did have the jazz in the end (and the ending was so poetic–you know what I mean). Having an open mind is always a good way to approach film and life! Tweeting this now 🙂
