Movies, Drama


No Comments 23 February 2013


I can see that Amour wins an Oscar tomorrow for Best Foreign Film, but I doubt that he will the Oscar for Best Picture. Why? Amour is too serious, too much art and too little entertainment.

The film chronicles the hardship couples face when they get really old and one person declines more quickly than the other. The acting is absolutely superb but the film makes you feel uncomfortable because you need to think about death.  Interestingly, I probably saw more people older than 65 in the cinema than ever before. I wonder what they felt, giving that for them the death is so much closer. This is not a film to see when you want to be cheered up. But if you are ready to see a marvelous piece of art whose effects will linger for many days, go see Amour.
