Michael Haneke's French-language Amour, a perfect film about intertwined lives, proceeds at its own pace, and breathes so deeply that it takes your own breath away. show more
Amour arrives with plaudits and praise. But this is not hype, it is all deserved. This is a masterpiece. show more
It is a wonderful story of love and what it means to a couple who have been there for each other for their entire lives. No it is not a traditional BS American Love Story where all is happy and rosy, but it is powerful. If for nothing else watch it to understand what it is to be there for a Parent, Friend or Partner at the end of their life and how love is not always about greeting cards and dinner, it is so much more.
This couple had no support, no community and no faith. They were alone and lost. Very sad. Also, why call it amour.? She exacted a terrible promise from him - very selfish and not loving at all. The movie made life seem meaningless.
mostly dull story with many pointless shots---acting is excellent but should have been at 30 minutes shorter---nothing learned, nothing gained
