Amour


Amour
This multi-award winning film (including Best Foreign Oscar) finally hits the big screens here, and shame on the distributors for taking so long. It takes a look at the inevitable process of ageing which will someday affect most of us, as seen through the eyes of two retired music teachers. They are enjoying their life until the wife begins to take ill, a process which can not be stopped and which leads to touch decisions. In French language with English subtitles.

127 minutes.
