Two new clips have gone online for director Michael Haneke’s 2012 Palme d’Or-winning drama, Amour. Â 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. Â I haven’t seen the film, but if these two incredibly poignant and emotional clips are any indication, thenÂ AmourÂ certainly has more awards in its near future.
Amour,Â starring Jean-Louis Trintignant, Emmanuelle Riva and Isabelle Huppert, opens domestically in limited release on December 19th. Â Hit the jump to see the new clips.Â
Check out the two new clips fromÂ AmourÂ 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. Â One day, Anne has an attack. The coupleâ€™s bond of love is severely tested.
