Movie: Amour

[Movie times have been posted. The film begins at 4. Due to high demand, I recommend that we meet at the theatre at 3:30! This way, you can get your ticket, and avoid the dreaded "sold out" sign. And we can chat French for 1/2 hour before the movie, not a bad way to pass the time. A dimanche!]

 

Provocative writer/director Michael Haneke (Caché, The Piano Teacher), who previously won the Palme d'Or for The White Ribbon, won the prestigious Cannes award again for Amour ("Love"). Treating his characters with unusual warmth and sympathy, his new drama shows old age and death with unflinching honesty, but nevertheless lives up to its title. This is a touching portrait of a longtime married couple, whose bond of love remains strong facing any hardship. It stars two of France's best-loved actors, both in their eighties: Jean-Louis Trintignant (A Man and a Woman, Z, The Conformist) and Emmanuelle Riva (Hiroshima Mon Amour); both are superb. Georges and Anne are retired music teachers, living in a spacious apartment in Paris, venturing out occasionally to attend a concert by one of their former students. When Anne has an attack, Georges devotes himself to her care. Heartbreaking, uncommonly tender and haunting. With Isabelle Huppert. Winner of 4 European Film Awards, including Best Film, Director, Actor and Actress. In French with English subtitles.

 

We will update this announcement as soon as the movie times are posted.

    Something came up so I'm not sure I can make the film portion of this event. I'd love to join you all, though, for the usual after film drink at whatever bar you choose that night. Can someone please text me at[masked] to let me know where I can rendez-vous with all of you. Thanks.

    I changed the meeting time from 4 to 3:30! There will be a crowd, and tickets might sell out. Better to be there early. Movie is at 4.
