Amour (Cert 12A)
Saturday 20th April from 8pm
Dir: Michael Haneke, 2012, Austria, France, Germany, 127mins, Cert PG-13
“An unforgettable love story set at the close of day, as tragic and beautiful in its way as Tristan und Isolde.”
Examining the close bond shared by an elderly couple when one of them begins to suffer from an illness, AMOUR tells a heart-rending story of sacrifice, devotion and the limits that love can drive us to.
Featuring breath-taking, award-winning performances from its two leads, AMOUR is one of the most honest, intimate and deeply affecting portraits of love ever committed to film.
The second film to win Michael Haneke (director of Hidden and The White Ribbon) the coveted Palme d’Or award and hailed as his finest work to date, AMOUR has secured its place as a modern classic and amongst the greatest films ever made.
