Movie Review – Amour

When you’re reading the programme for a film festival, and you see that a film won the Palme d'Or at Cannes, you pretty much automatically mark it down as a film to see. This is exactly what I did when I came across this one, and I even decided to read nothing more about the film. So I knew it was an award winner, and about love, and that’s all I needed.

“Georges and Anne are in their eighties. They are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter, who is also a musician, lives abroad with her family. One day, Anne has an attack. The couple's bond of love is severely tested.” 

Despite 'Amour' being super sad and fairly depressing, it was the truest love story ever told. Because it's not Hollywood love, or any form of overly emotional glamorized love, but balls to the wall, through thick and thin love. It intentionally dragged on shots, scenes, and its overall length, which wasn't helped by me busting for the toilet for 3/4 of it, but those are the only flaws. Bloody awesome film, and expect some tears!
