I always manage to enjoy depressing movies, but I felt extremely touched and sad after seeing it. "Amour" could be a true story happened to any family. With love, it might be easier to handle.... Or evev more difficult?!

i really didn't know what to expect when i went to see "Amour". I smiled, laughed and cried. The acting by Emmanuelle Riva is superb. She really convinced us of her suffering. Trintignant does show compassion and frustration as the husband. This is a "must" see movie. Whether you agree with the subject or not, it gives a deep understanding of love between two persons.
NOT FOR KIDS OR OVERSENSITIVE PERSONS.

Terrible! Yes , I did my research. I read the positive reviews. Afterward, I read them again looking for clues to my own undoing. Remember when you were in grade school and your English teacher had to explain to you why the strange poem you just read was interesting (maybe to her but not to you)? Can French movies can be reduced to long drawn out pauses, plus allegories? Unfortunately even a reduction may not translate. Yes, there were bits of humor and answers to moral questions, but my wife missed them since she fell asleep. Sleep, induced by the movie's long pauses, now seems preferable.

This is the kind of movie one should almost see alone (as I did) because when it is over you will be speechless and contemplative. To speak is to intrude, to diminish.

This was an amazing and tender and accurate portrayal of love and loss - the ultimate loss after a lifetime of love. I just went through this -- my husband died of lymphoma last August. The opposite end of the spectrum of movies like Django. Go see it and take in the beauty.
