I guess that Michael Haneke‘s upcoming movie, simply titled Amour is quite familiar title to all of us.
After all, a few days ago folks from Sony Pictures Classics acquired all North American rights to Haneke’s latest film, which will mark the third film between the director and the Studio.
Today, we’re here to start a little chat about this movie, which will premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, In Competition category. Actually, we already wrote about the movie because its premiere was expected at Cannes Fest last year.
Who knows, Haneke could win Palme D’Or again (The White Ribbon – 2009).
Amour centers on cultured octogenarians Georges and Anne, who are retired music teachers. Their daughter, also a musician, lives abroad with her family.
One day, Anne suffers a minor stroke. When she leaves the hospital and returns home, she is paralyzed down one side. The love that binds this old couple will really be put to the test.
The cast looks promising as well. Georges and Anne are played by Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva, while Isabelle Huppert stars as their daughter.
As usual, we wish them good luck!
