Aleem Khan / 2020 / 90 mins / 12.   English / French / Arabic / Urdu with subtitles

Love and loss surface in Dover and Calais in Aleem Khan’s highly rated feature debut, a sympathetic portrait of a widow left reeling by discovery of her husband’s secret life. Mary and her ferry-captain husband are a middle-aged Muslim couple living quietly in Dover, she having converted to Islam in order to marry Ahmed. After she is suddenly widowed, Mary goes through Ahmed’s belongings and on emptying his wallet comes across an ID card belonging to a French woman and finds intimate sounding voicemails on his phone. Shocked but curious, Mary travels to France to locate the address on the ID card and meets a woman called Genevieve (Nathalie Richard). Sensitively directed by Khan, After Love is an accomplished, elegantly realised and insightful drama about the possibilities of connection across physical and cultural barriers. A remarkable debut, with a delicacy and tenderness that is testament to the quality of its writing and performances, it is brilliantly led by Joanna Scanlan as Mary.
