Watch The Sweet Hereafter - Alternative Versions.
The Sweet Hereafter is as tragic, sad and matter-of-fact as movies get, but
it's still so very beautiful that it becomes a film that's virtually
impossible to forget.
The story makes no secret of the fact what terrible tragedy will happen,
right from the outset. A lesser filmmaker than Atom Egoyan would've jumped
at the chance to shock the audience with the freak accident that robs the
town of Sam Dent of nearly all their children, by telling the story in a
linear fashion. Not Egoyan. The story is fragmented, thus enhancing the true
point: This is not about the overwhelming power of loss, it is about the
overwhelming power of survivor's guilt (nicely represented in Browning's
poem The Pied Piper Of Hamelin, which is referred to in the movie). It's all
about people who grieve not only for the ones they've lost, but also for
themselves, how empty their lives have become because of their tragedies. In
focussing on that point, the film refrains from manipulative sentiment
(which so many others don't), and presents true and unintrusive emotion,
that, in the end, despite all the terror, shines a light of hope, for the
sweet hereafter is not only the peaceful afterlife, it's also the peaceful
future, the continuation of life...
The performances speak for themselves. Ian Holm and Sarah Polley shine in
particular, through nicely subdued and subtle acting. Polley also excels as
a fantastic singer-songwriter. The songs in the movie were written and
performed all by herself.
Egoyan's direction is simply masterful in its beauty, elegance and
One of the best films of the 1990s.
10 out of 10.
