An octogenarian couple find their love put to the ultimate test when one of them suffers a stroke, and the other must assume the role of the caretaker in this compassionate yet unsentimental drama from director Michael Haneke. Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) and Anne (Emmanuelle Riva) are retired classical-music teachers savoring their golden years in a comfortable apartment when Anne experiences a stroke that leaves her partially paralyzed. As devoted Georges struggles with the formidable task of becoming Anne's full-time caretaker, a visit from their adult daughter Eva (Isabelle Huppert) reaffirms just how secluded from society the highly educated couple have become since retiring. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Great film, deserves all the awards it has received. The subtitles are a little small but because of the pace of the film it's no big deal. Basically just two people in an apartment for two hours and the movie flows masterfully. A wonderful story dealing with a subject a lot of people are going through or will go through in their life.
