Amour - Preview and trailer
Preview by Jack Foley
A RAW, unflinching and emotionally devastating examination of human relationships at their most intimate and profound, Michael Haneke’s Amour focuses on the lives of an elderly couple and the strain their relationship undergoes after one of them suffers from a stroke.
Hailed as the director’s finest film to date and positioning him firmly as the world’s leading contemporary auteur, Amour is one of the most powerfully moving pieces of cinema ever made, pitched at the highest level of intelligence and insight possible.
The film stars Jean-Louis Trintignant, Emmanuelle Riva and Isabelle Huppert.
Among its many awards, Amour has won the Best Foreign Language Film at the 2013 Oscars, the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2012 and Best Leading Actress and Best Foreign Language Film at the 2013 BAFTAs.
