Pssst, want to check out Amour in our new look?

This film struck me from the inside out. I've seen so many films, but very, very few have stuck with me the way Amour did. Every person who is currently married or engaged should be required to see this film. It challenges our views on aging and caring for one another until the end. Beautiful, beautiful, and heartbreaking.
An elderly couple in a flat, getting by after one of them has a stroke. That's it. It sounds boring but it isn't - Haneke, like the Dardenne bros , creates the most captivating cinema from day to day life and relationships. People who say this is slow haven't got a clue. It makes me feel like I've eaten a Michelin starred meal afterwards in much the same way a blockbuster makes me feel I've just wolfed down a McDonalds. Brilliant
I can't help but wonder why Jean-Louis Trintignant wasn't nominated for the Oscars. He could have certainly given DDL a run for his money...
