Academy Award Winner: Best Foreign Language Film
Academy Award Nominee: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress


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. Directed by internationally acclaimed filmmaker Michael Haneke (THE WHITE RIBBON, FUNNY GAMES, CACHE, THE PIANO TEACHER), and winner of the Palm d'Or at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

“Brilliantly directed with an atypically tender touch by the Austrian director Michael Haneke, this story about an octogenarian husband and wife facing their mortality left [Cannes] audiences stunned with its artistry and depth of feeling… To judge by the unusually sustained standing ovation that greeted the announcement of the Palme d’Or, AMOUR seemed like the only possible choice.” -Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

"A film like AMOUR has a lesson for us that only the cinema can teach: the cinema, with its heedless ability to leap across time and transcend lives and dramatize what it means to be a member of humankind's eternal audience." -Roger Ebert
