“Tonight is the night of nights. Today, as you read this, you are en route to the great adventure for which you have trained for over two years.” Wrong speech, but tonight is Oscar night, so for some tonights is the night..This also mean we are done on our journey. Amour is the last one.
The film is about Georges and Anne who are in their eighties, retired music teachers. One morning Anne has an attack. After a surgery gone wrong, the right half of her body is paralyzed. The two decide take care of her at their own apartment. This all goes “we” until Anne get a second sesure. The way George and Anne handle the situation is amazing. They kibble, fight, laugh and cry together in this film the shows how a couple at their old age love each other and sacrifise all just be with each other. It’s brilliant film. Not like all the other nominees and can’t be compared with any of them.
I can’t say a lot about it you just have to go see it, It’s heartwarming and hopefully at my old age and something happens to me, which make it difficult for to take of myself, I hope my counterpart will be so patient, caring and loving.
It follows a long line French drama film and can proudly take its place in French Austrian film history.
Amour is nominated for: Best Picture, Best Actress (Emmanuelle Riva), Best Director (Michael Haneke), Best Original Screenplay(Haneke), Best Foreign Language Film (Austria-Ffrance).
