Did You Know?
- This will be Keira Knightley and Jason Clarke's second collaboration since Everest (2015). In both films, they are married to each other.
- The book, the movie trailer, and the distributor's promotional material all set the story in 1946. However, one of the opening title cards says "Six months after the end of the war." Since Germany surrendered in May 1945, that would move the start of the story back one year to November 1945/Christmas 1945 instead of 1946.
- Rachael Morgan: You didn't tell me what I was walking into.

Beautiful sets, gorgeous scenery, beautiful mansion. Interesting story which is revealed in bits and pieces as the story is told. I thought it was engaging. I learned something of history as well. Well worth the time and money.
boring predictable and slow.
The Aftermath works best when looking at the bewildered people who have been left behind, literally, to pick up the pieces. The savage loss of family members still reverberates through empty rooms and ruined landscapes.
Where it might have been an old-fashioned melodrama with credible historical appeal, instead it suggests an old-school celluloid epic whose print has lost a reel or two.
Director James Kent’s adaptation of Rhidian Brook’s 2014 novel — about a ghost-like Germany, a broken British marriage, and the healing powers of a passionate thaw — has the unfortunate quality of a hot-blooded soap grafted onto rather than merged with a historical-political drama.
