Gasper Noé Presents: Amour [12A]

Runtime: 127 mins

Distributor: Artificial Eye

To celebrate the release of Vortex, the latest from acclaimed director Gaspar Noé, Culture Shock presents a diverse selection of films personally curated by Noé himself, each relating to the narrative, formal and collaborative elements of Vortex. A masterful, heartbreaking film about a marriage tested by the onset of illness, from Austrian auteur Michael Haneke (HIDDEN, THE WHITE RIBBON). <br/><br/> Elderly couple Georges (Trintignant, THREE COLOURS RED) and Anne (Riva, HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR), retired music teachers, live a contented life enjoying one another’s company in Paris, dividing their time between reading, playing music and concerts in the evenings. But when Anne suffers a stroke, Georges must learn to care for her in an entirely new way, calling on their daughter Eva (Huppert, THE PIANO TEACHER) to help him cope with a wife and mother almost entirely transformed by illness. <br/><br/> Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, this exquisite, beautifully acted film is an absolute must-see for fans of Haneke and newcomers to his devastating filmmaking style.
