Amour is the disturbing and moving depiction of an elderly Parisian couple having to cope with the woman's mental and physical deterioration following a stroke. Greeted with resounding critical acclaim, Amour is 'a devastating, highly intelligent and astonishingly performed work... a masterpiece' (Dave Calhoun, Time Out). Director and writer MICHAEL HANEKE won the Palme d'Or for it in Cannes this year, where Amour was described as 'film-making at the highest pitch of intelligence and insight. Haneke's mastery and supremacy have resounded here in Cannes like an orchestral chord' (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian).
