A simple and truly honest look at the strains that aging and illness have on a long lasting relationship. The immense believability of this relationship is the one factor that kept me invested. It presents some daunting questions about the inevitable death of all loved ones. Because of this, 'Amour' is a depressing watch. Add in the immensely slow pace and you have a tough watch for most. But if you see it through to the end, you may find a thoughtful and heartfelt resolution.

Amour is a difficult film - to watch and digest - but an important contemplation of aging and love through tragedy. The film is presented in an observational format that allows the audience to draw their own conclusions from a lot of the scenes. While, occasionally, this technique is overdone and results in some tediously long takes and slow pacing, when it works, it really works. Riva and Trintignant cap their careers with two incredible and vulnerable performances. The movie won't be for everyone, and I definitely was mixed on my reaction, but it's certainly a memorable film that will force you to contemplate some tough themes of mortality.

Director Haneke's icy precision is used to great effect in Amour, his most emotionally stirring film he's made. Though it does not equal pleasant viewing (anyone looking for escapist entertainment stay, far, far, away) it is an expertly crafted, almost suffocating, chamber piece. Deeply emotional, if not particularly cathartic, Emmanuelle Riva and Jean-Louis Trintignant give powerful performances. Isabelle Huppert also lends her top support. Ultimately it is a painful film, but one that faces it's subject with maturity and a refreshing lack of melodrama, displaying an inevitable part of life we will all have to face someday. Highly recommended.
