BRIEF SYNOPSIS:

"A couple find their love put to the ultimate test when one of them suffers a stroke, and the other must assume the role of the caretaker in this compassionate yet unsentimental drama from director Michael Haneke."

"Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) and Anne (Emmanuelle Riva) are retired classical-music teachers savoring their golden years in a comfortable apartment when Anne experiences a stroke that leaves her partially paralyzed. As devoted Georges struggles with the formidable task of becoming Anne's full-time caretaker, a visit from their adult daughter Eva (Isabelle Huppert) reaffirms just how secluded from society the highly educated couple have become since retiring."

"Transfixing and extraordinarily touching"--Entertainment Weekly

"A relentless and shattering masterwork"--MSN Movies

"Consummate acting"--The Hollywood Reporter

    I could either just say, "Holy !!?@?!" or: Powerful, though I would suggest rereading the first 15 pages of Camus' Myth of Sisyphus before seeing it. I think of this movie as Camus' long lost movie script (mythical, made up by me). The title says it all-- "Amour" doesn't mean "never having to say you're sorry" but staying in the muck of life even as your loved one and you face the inevitable physical disintegration, and "that long march towards whatever it is" to quote Tennessee Williams. Brave, nuanced performances--this movie is relentless. You will not be happy but it is an admirable film.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
