What the Critics say
Karla Janse van Vuuren
Herman Eloff It's not one meant for frivolous watching but rather a treat for the sophisticated film connoisseur that's willing to delve a little deeper into the problematic topics tackled. With its top-class cast and well-written script, The Aftermath is a pure indulgence of the senses and an accomplished fulfilment of the craft.
Jim Judy Overall, and notwithstanding the steamy sex scenes, this feels like an old wartime romantic drama you might accidentally stumble across while channel surfing, watch for a bit, and then move on, promptly forgetting everything you’ve just seen. Methinks the same will likely happen to this offering meaning there won’t be much notable aftermath after seeing it.
Tomatometer Tasteful to a fault, The Aftermath is worth seeking out only for the most passionate period drama enthusiasts.
