After Love

Aleem Kahn

Joanna Scanlan, Nathalie Richard, Talid Ariss, Nasser Memarzia Rated 12A Run time 89 mins

A wonderful performance by Scanlan who plays Mary, a white English Muslim married for many years to Ahmed who captains a cross channel ferry between Dover and Calais.

After he dies suddenly she travels to Calais and discovers that he was leading a double life with another family.

This debut feature from English-Pakistani film-maker Aleem Khan is a tale of secrets and lies, a portrait of people caught between identities and cultures and thoroughly gripping from start to finish.

7.5/10 – IMDB
“the acting is superb and the dialogue, from first-time feature director/writer Aleem Khan (born and raised in Kent), is full of lovely and organic little shocks.”
