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.

At his provocative best, though - in his brilliant, gorgeous 2009 film "The White Ribbon," a study of the roots of fascism in domestic tyranny, and now in Amour - Haneke implicates us in the full range of human capacity. Full Review

All great films have imagination; this one also has the sense of experience. Full Review
