“All of which is to say: bring hankies. This is a film that will make you weep not only because life ends but also because it blooms.” - Manohla Dargis for The New York Times

Amour (2012, Michael Haneke, 120 min.)


George and Anne are a content couple, enjoying their retirement. However, when Anne (Emmanuelle Riva) suffers a stroke one day at breakfast, the couple’s love is severely tested. George (Jean-Louis Trintignant) does his best to care for his wife and find their new normal. With the input of their daughter (Isabelle Huppert), George is faced with difficult choices on how to help Anne without compromising her dignity. See why this film won the Best Foreign Film Oscar and continues to be viewed as one of the best films of the 21st century.

He was shy, but it’s shyness that made Jean-Louis Trintignant an actor valued by the best directors for what he held back rather than what he gave away. He was shy and women loved him. His first wife was the actress Stéphane Audran; his affair with Brigitte Bardot on the set of And God Created Woman directed by Roger Vadim, Bardot’s husband, made him famous. He went on to work with Chabrol, Lelouch, Truffaut, Bertolucci, and be paired with Romy Schneider, Anouk Aimée, Juliette Binoche, Fanny Ardant and many more…He even made a spaghetti western! His other passion was car racing and he survived the Mans 24 hours race. His life had its share of tragedy, losing his first daughter, Pauline, at 10 months, and his other daughter, the actress Marie Trintignant, a victim of domestic violence. He made very few films after this tragedy, one of them the much-awarded Amour, by Michael Haneke.
