Film: Amour

January 24, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 12:00 am

$11

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. Nominated for 5 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Actress (Riva). In French.
