A staggering, profound examination of love, Michael Haneke’s compassionate film centers on Georges and Anne, long-married octogenarians and retired music teachers who still take great delight in each other. As Anne grows increasingly debilitated both mentally and physically, however, their bonds will be tested. In depicting the struggle to maintain dignity during the unremitting cruelties of aging, "Amour" brilliantly discusses the greatest crucible of life’s final chapter: figuring out how to best honor the past.
