Love ( Amour ) 

3.5/4 stars

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.
