Michael Haneke

Amour (Michael Haneke)


Police break into a Paris apartment and discover the body of an elderly woman. Her husband is nowhere to be found. We then jump back in time to before Anne became incapacitated by illness. What we witness is the cost of love, the day-to-day activity of caring for another person, no matter the physical or emotional cost. Michael Haneke’s most sensitive film is unflinching in its determination to track what happens to the dying and those around them. This is deeply humane, profoundly moving cinema. At the age of 85, Emmanuelle Riva became the oldest Best Actress Oscar nominee for her role in Amour.
