Two new clips have gone online for director Michael Haneke’s 2012 Palme d’Or-winning drama, Amour. The touching story centers on a married couple in their eighties and the struggle they endure as each others’ mental and physical health begins to fail. I haven’t seen the film, but if these two incredibly poignant and emotional clips are any indication, then Amour certainly has more awards in its near future.
Amour, starring Jean-Louis Trintignant, Emmanuelle Riva and Isabelle Huppert, opens domestically in limited release on December 19th. Hit the jump to see the new clips.
Check out the two new clips from Amour below (via The Film Stage):
Here’s the film’s synopsis:
In the film, Georges (Trintignant) and Anne (Riva) are in their eighties. They are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter (Huppert), 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.
