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.

3.5/4 

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.

Language of Love

Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) and Anne (Emmanuelle Riva) are man and wife in their eighties. Their love to each other is tested when Anne had an attack and has to suffer with illness from then on.

I used to avoid foreign films because I thought I would not understand them FULLY anyway. BUT THIS, this film. indeed, speak of the universality of love. First few minutes of the film, I said, "hey, they gave it away already." I thought the film would be soooo boring. If not with the outstanding performances of the actors, I would say that I was right that the whole movie would be indeed boring. BUT NO. These two old-age actors brought out the best of performances their characters needed. The message was undeniably delivered with the emotions, the crying, the touches, ALL OF IT. I u...

Not oscar worthy in my book!

Although I don't mind watching foreign films from time to time i have to admit only watching this film as Emmanuelle Riva (Anne in this story) was nominated for best actress for it and being a fan of the oscars (Really the only award program i watch regularily) I try and make a point to see as many films that are nominated as possible. This approach actualy broadens my movie horizons as this is definatly not a movie i would've watched otherwise. That much being said i didn't hate the film and will say Emmanuelle did a good job portraying Anne who has been striken in the film by not one but two strokes. Do i think it's a performance worthy of an oscar nod??...no i do not. You see the movie itself is very dark in it's nature as it tells the story of George and Anne, a couple both in their ...
