Summary
Academy Award-nominated drama directed by Michael Haneke exploring death, ageing and the fear of loss. Anne and George (Emmanuelle Riva and Jean-Louis Trintignant) are a couple in their 80s who are enjoying their retirement, but that changes when, after an operation following a stroke, Anne is left wheelchair-bound and paralysed. Although she expresses her wish to die, even going so far as to make an attempt at taking her own life, George tries to remind her of the beauty and worth of life itself and the love that they share for each other. The feature won the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film and received BAFTAs for Best Film Not in the English Language and Best Leading Actress (Riva)
