Our take

Michael Haneke won his second Palme d’Or—and his first Oscar®—for this uncompromising yet compassionate drama depicting the difficult reality of death. A profoundly moving and unforgettable film, Amour stars two of the all-time greats of French cinema: Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva.
