I listened to Radio 4′s The Film Programme and they reviewed Amour, Michael Haneke’s new film which won the Palme d’Or at Cannes this year. It’s a moving, uncompromising drama about an elderly couple who face the end together in their Paris apartment.Veteran actors, Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva, give breathtaking performances as Georges and Anne, retired music teachers in their 80s, living in a handsomely furnished, book-lined Paris apartment. They are happy, affectionate, loving; active and content. But one day, Anne suffers the first of a series of strokes which paralyse one arm, making playing the piano impossible, accompanied by progressive dementia. Perhaps the most horrifying parts of the film are the first, tiny indications that something is wrong. Not easy stuff to watch, but you’ll be missing out on a masterpiece if you don’t.
