Film Series: Amour

2012. France/Austria. Dir: Michael Haneke. With Emmanuelle Riva. 127 min.

An aging husband struggles to face his wife’s physical decay after she suffers a stroke – a tough subject, certainly, but Haneke’s astounding Oscar winner handles it with grace, creating a balance between the haunting and the heartfelt. This may be the most terrifying affirmation of love’s power yet put on film. Presented as part of The Tournées Festival.
