Since I have always been a fan of Michael Haneke’s work, of course, I was really eager to check this flick. Man, even though the guy is already around 70 years old, he is definitely on fire right now and won with this movie his 2nd Golden Palm in a row at the Cannes Film Festival and it won many other awards as well. And, indeed, it definitely deserved all the praises it has received. Personally... read more

Description: Georges and Anne are a couple of retired music teachers enjoying life in their eighties. However, Anne suddenly has a stroke at breakfast and their lives are never the same. That incident begins Anne's harrowingly steep physical and mental decline as Georges attempts to care for her at home as she wishes. Even as the fruits of their lives and career remain bright, the couple's hopes for some dignity prove a dispiriting struggle even as their daughter enters the conflict. In the end, George, with his love fighting against his own weariness and diminished future on top of Anne's, is driven to make some critical decisions for them ... (more)

"10.7. Elisa viihde Kuin katsoisi lumoutuneena huippuvalokuvaajan taltioimia otoksia kahden ihmisen elämästä, mutta samalla, kuin olisi itse mukana todistamassa taphtumia juuri niin sivusta, ettei tule huomatuksi. Aivan kuten Cassavetes parhaimmillaan. Staattinen kuvaus tuo myös Ozun väistämättä mieleen. Lämpimiä värejä ei ihan heti Hanekeen yhdistäisi. Muuten visuaalinen ilme on toki ohjaajansa näköinen. Lämpö mun mielestä ainakin isossa kuvassa rajoittuukin tähän. Rakkaan i"

My Top 100 Favorite Films of 2010s (134 movies items)

"Haunting ! Love it or hate it, I don't know but I can't resist the power of this film ,I almost hate it but the performance from Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva is really great and I loved them personally. Brilliant directing and performances and the story that may linger in your mind forever,that's the reason I'd give it 10. But it's the film that I don't feel like wanting to "touch" it again."
