Amour review

Film description

Amour is a gruelling drama film written and directed by Michael Haneke.

It tells the story of an elderly couple's struggle to cope when one of them suffers a stroke. Starring Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva, Amour is an exploration of the nature of love, and what it means to be human as we approach the end of our lives.

The film won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012.

Amour will appear at the 56th London Film Festival in October 2012 before opening in the UK on 16 November 2012.
