‘Amour’ (Dec. 19)

German-Austrian auteur Michael Haneke has built a solid reputation for his mesmerizing, grim sagas like "The Piano Teacher" and "The White Ribbon", but he exhibits a lighter touch with "Amour". The film follows an elderly couple, Anne (Emmanuelle Riva) and Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant), a pair of retired music teachers living in Paris. When Anne suffers a terrible stroke that leaves her paralyzed, Georges is forced into the role of doting caretaker, struggling to make his great love’s final days as painless as possible. The film won the Palme d’Or at Cannes, was selected as the Austrian entry for the Best Foreign Film Oscar, and may be the first foreign-language film to be nominated for the Best Picture Oscar since 2006’s "Letters From Iwo Jima".
