The story centers on an elderly couple who are thrown into turmoil when Anne suffers a paralyzing stroke, rocking the world of her husband George and daughter Eva. Legendary actors Jean-Louis Trintignant (“And God Created Women,” “Z“) and Emmauelle Riva (“Hiroshima Mon Amour,” “Léon Morin, Priest“) feature as the married duo with the always outstanding Isabelle Huppert as their daughter. That cast plus Haneke? It’s a no-brainer why it was included on our list of 15 Most Anticipated Films Of The Cannes Film Festival.
“Amour” will screen on Sunday, May 20th and will be released by Sony Pictures Classics later this year.
