- Quick review:
- Michael Haneke’s remarkable and heart-breaking portrait of an elderly Parisian couple stars French New Wave icons Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva. When she falls ill, he must care of her, throwing the quiet, comfortable lives of these two retired musicians into chaos. A sad and beautiful - and occasionally frightening - masterpiece.
