ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Winner of both the Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film, as well as the Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or, Director/Writer Michael Haneke (CACHE, THE WHITE RIBBON) crafts a gripping portrait of an octogenarian couple, Georges and Anne, whose lives are heart-wrenchingly upended when Anne has a stroke. Salon.com raves, "This is an unforgettable love story set at the close of day, as tragic and beautiful in its way as "Tristan und Isolde," and a portrait of the impossible beauty and fragility of life that will yield new experiences to every viewer and every viewing." AMOUR stars Jean-Louis Trintignant (THREE COLORS: RED, THE CONFIRMIST), the late Oscar nominee Emmanuelle Riva (HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR, THERESE) and Oscar nominee Isabelle Huppert (ELLE, CAPTIVE).
