This film was basically terrible. Although the actors did their job well, they could not overcome the morbid path the director and or writer took them down. It may be a film of reality for some but it lacks anything recognizable in the realm of human love and human compassion. Regret having wasted my money on it. And it is a waste.

The story was very maudlin, certainly with a point. Not the feel good movie of the year, but the performances were good, shot very nicely. Good script for the subject matter.

My wife and I are both in our 80's. One cannot help wonder how it's going to happen. We know it will. Just having the experience of taking care of someone in the situation described in the film is not the same as living it yourself. This film made me have to consider my future. French, Yes, but very realistic and introspective. It isn't really entertainment for entertainment's sake. If you have the guts, go see it.

This film is by far, one of the best films ever made!!! It won the Palm d'Or at? Cannes, and Emmanuelle Riva is nothing less than FLAWLESSLY AMAZING!!!!

yawn, huh? Is this torturous movie over yet? If you like watching people read, sleep, cut meat, and trim the heads off daisies you will love this movie. Watching paint dry would be more entertaining to me!
