This Saturday, October 5, at 7:00 p.m. at the Cinema of Casa Haas, the Cycle: “Serenity” will conclude, with the screening of the film “Amour” (2012) by Austrian director Michael Haneke, deserving of the Palme d’Or in Cannes and an Oscar for Best Foreign Film.
Michael Haneke offers an intimate, brave and devastating portrait of an older couple; “Anne” (Emanuelle Riva) and “Georges” (Jean-Louis Trintignant), who face a sudden change in their lives when one of the two suffers a stroke that slowly leaves their body still.
We are presented with the crude realities of the disease, although the objective is not only to show the drama, but to explore the emotions and instincts in the couple: pride, despair, loss, empathy and its limits.
It was filmed with broad general planes that allow you to feel the spacsurrounded by four walls to keep the protagonists away from the rest of the world, living their drama inside their apartment. In addition “Amour” has a script loaded with visual and auditory symbolisms that express various moods, creates atmosphere and poetic figures.
The performances shine brilliantly, giving us physical and emotional expressions with which we delicately realize the deterioration of the characters and as spectators, we suffer.
Michael Haneke is one of the artisans of world cinema and demonstrates with “Amour” an intelligent and invaluable work.
