Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The resulting interplay of ruthless restraint and unavoidable passion, plus the film's refusal to shrink from depicting the inevitable horrors of physical deterioration, is devastating.
Fresh: "Amour" isn't just a great movie, it's a movie that may actually do you some good.
Fresh: A movie that is utterly worthy of its all-encompassing title.
Fresh: Many viewers will find echoes of their grandparents, parents, or even themselves in these characters.
Over the top
What possessed the writer to go to such a dark place with this movie. Reality? Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor.
The message could have been conveyed in much more tasteful fashion . Ultimately a viewer shud gain something positive from a movie regardless of how visceral it is. Amour fails in this. Yes, the acting was Oscar worthy, but that's it.
Seriously moving story of love and loss
This is one of those movies you watch once and never want to see again, not because it is bad, but because it affects you so viscerally the first time that any subsequent viewings will just force you into a deeper sense of despair. This movie was a fortunate ordeal, in that it was difficult to watch, but you are made more aware of the life you are living because of it. I am not afraid to say that I cried when it was done, and I still get that pang of sadness whenever I recall Emanuelle Riva's amazing performance. An incredibly moving account of what awaits some of us when we reach that particular age.
Watching an old lady die
Im a big foreign/indie movie buff...this one did not hit it out of the park. Painfully slow, and not as gripping as they aimed to make it.
