The spectacular film will seriously test your patience, love, and extremes in case you are married or planning to. Haneke’s evolving filmology techniques brought to us an octogenarian couple this time around. It is Georges and Anne, who are both retired music teachers. Their perfect marriage brought them a daughter, who is also involved with music but lives in Britain with her family. But, when Anne suddenly suffers a deliberating stroke, their beautiful relationship is interrupted and their home becomes a second market. However, the manner in which these two ordinary bourgeois types reckon with this predicament, later on, begins to induce a merciless new kind of humanism. Certainly, one where a life lived with love requires an end with a death which is handled with dignity. “Amour” is one of a kind, but not that to be watched on a valentine’s day. It is a genuine test for the married couples, yet a lecturing love story for all who fall in love. It won a number of awards and has been listed as one of the best films of the 21st Century.
