Michael Haneke’s ‘Amour’ is devastatingly original and unflinching in the way it examines the effect of love on death, and vice versa. It’s a staggering, intensely moving look at old age and life’s end, which at its heart offers two performances of incredible skill and wisdom from French veteran actors Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva. The director of Hidden and The White Ribbon depicts an intimate and brave portrait of an elderly Parisian couple, Anne and Georges, facing up to a sudden turn in their lives.
