"A masterpiece about life, death and everything in between, Michael Haneke’s Amour takes a long, hard, tender look at an elderly French couple, Georges and Anne — played by two titans of French cinema, Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva — in their final days." ( Manohla Dargis,NY Times)
Oscar Nominated–– Best Foriegn Film, Best Actress, Best Original Screenplay, Best Director and Best Picture! The latest from modern master Michael Haneke (The White Ribbon), Amour is a deeply moving but deceptively simple film about love in the face of mortality. Starring screen legends Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva as an elderly couple dealing with life after a stroke, this Palme d'Or winner, nominated for five Oscars including Best Foreign Film and Best Picture, is easily an instant classic.
Michael Haneke. 2012. 127 m. PG-13. France/Germany/Austria, French. Sony Pictures Classics.
