Amour

Examining the close bond shared by an elderly couple when one of them begins to suffer from an illness, "Amour" tells a heart-rending story of sacrifice, devotion and the limits that love can drive us to. Featuring breathtaking, award-winning performances from its two leads, Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuele Riva, "Amour" is one of the most honest, intimate and deeply affecting portraits of love ever committed to film. The second film to win Michael Haneke (director of "Hidden" and "The White Ribbon") the coveted Palme dOr award and hailed as his finest work to date, "Amour" has secured its place as a modern classic.
