Released in 2012, multi-award winning French film by Michael Haneke and starring Jean-Louis Trintignant, Emmanuelle Riva and Isabelle Huppert.
Georges and Anne are cultivated retired music teachers in their eighties. Their daughter, also a musician, lives abroad with her family. One day, Anne has a stroke that leaves her partly paralysed and unable to look after herself.
Coping with his wife’s deteriorating condition puts enormous strain on Georges who wants to keep her at home and preserve her dignity, despite opposition from their daughter.
Haneke has produced a wonderful film that is described as honest, lacking sentimentality and not gloomy.
