Amour at Bethesda Row Cinema

Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jan 20th at 4:30 for Amour at the Landmark Bethesda Row . Look for Laine wearing a green coat in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.

Provocative writer/director Michael Haneke (CachA(c), 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. Nominated for 5 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Actress (Riva). In French. (Fully subtitled)

    Liked everything but the ending. It was a little too ambiguous for me.

    Has anybody heard how sad this movie is supposed to be.
    I cry easily. I'd rather not do that in front of you guys and it's tough reading subtitles through tears. Is this
    a two or three hankie film? Should I just wait for the DVD and
    watch it at home?
