Amour a.k.a. Love (2012)Directed by Michael HanekeI watched this movie last Friday, as part of a screening at Cinephiles Film Club. In April, all the movies screened were Best Foreign Language Film Oscar winners, and this French movie took the prize in 2013.The movie is about Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) and Anne (Emmanuelle Riva), an elderly couple, in their eighties. Anne experiences a sudden stroke, and undergoes a subsequent surgery that leaves her paralyzed on one side. The movie depicts how Georges cares for her, with her increasingly worsening health condition. Dramas are not my type of movie at all. So, I wasn't really looking forward to watching it, and was not expecting to like it at all. However, it turned out that this was one of the best movies I watched at the Film Club screenings. It's very well made, and superbly acted. The movie was very emotionally impactful and it has a very realistic depiction of love and how difficult it can be. It's well written and was engaging. Darius Khondji who shot David Fincher's "Se7en" is the cinematographer for this movie. This is a sketch of Emmanuelle Riva as Anne from the movie. At the age of 85, she was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar. The drawing was done in pencil and this is a scan. #253 / 3-May-17
