Love After Love

A conventional, dull soap opera (1992) by Diane Kurys about middle-class adultery as a way of life. Isabelle Huppert plays a novelist married to an architect with a long-term mistress and two kids from that relationship; she becomes involved with a pop musician who’s married as well, and various recriminations and complications ensue. The French title is Apres l’amour, but the U.S. distributor apparently wanted to make it sound more upbeat. (JR)
