Amour (2012) ****1/2
Dir: Michael Haneke. Cast: Jean-Louis Trintignant, Emmanuella Riva, Isabelle Huppert.
Rated: PG-13. Running Time: 127 mins.
After his wife suffers a stroke, her husband does what he can to care for and ease her pain.
Impeccably acted, this heart-wrenching look at a long married couple's waning days is sure to bring tears. Never melodramatic or over sentimental, Hanake maintains just the right tone to prevent this from becoming maudlin.
This is definitely one to see.
