Total Film | Amour Review

TF:
Old age and terminal illness are placed under Michael Haneke’s microscope in Amour.

But far from being a cold, scientific study from a filmmaker frequently accused of placing a pane of glass between his work and his viewers, this sensitive film emerges heartfelt and humane.

Opening with the police breaking down the doors of a Parisian apartment to find the corpse of an old woman laid out in bed, the Austrian auteur then takes us through the months leading up to this discovery. (Amour, Indie film) 5/5
