REVIEWS

 

Mary Corliss, Time Magazine

In the history of movies about love, Amour shall last forever.

Manohla Dargis, NY Times

A tender, wrenching, impeccably directed story of love and death.

Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

Transfixing and extraordinarily touching, perhaps the most hauntingly honest movie about old age ever made.

    The movie was a dignified & honest portrayal but also sad. The group was great & discussion is always lively!! The restaurant was fantastic.

    Brutally honest, heartbreakingly sad and exquisitely beautiful. Most of us need a good stiff drink afterwards. Enjoyed the dinner and the company. Thanks to all who came.

    I have left a message for the manager at Cafe Tandoor to see if they can accommodate more people. Will keep you posted.

    I'm considering going to the movie since there isn't a limit for the theater and I'm not interested in being on the waiting list for Tandoor. I plan to hit up some spot on Lee Road after the movie if anyone is interested. I know a lot of them are noisy but if we are a small group it would probably work out okay.
