Nominated for 5 Oscars this year, this film presents a loving elderly French couple that must cope with deteriorating health while attempting to answer mind numbing caregiver and end-of-life questions. The movie requires special attention from viewers due to the subject matter and shouldn't be dismissed too early for its sometimes slow and labored pace--coincidently, the same characteristics each of us must deal with as we get older. This is as real as it gets and, together with no music soundtrack and subtitles in English, the film appears even more stark and raw. By the end of the movie you'll appreciate your loved ones more and understand what real love is between two people. A difficult and powerful movie to watch, but one that you will not forget. Academy Award nominated for Best Picture, Best Director (Michael Haneke), Best Actress (Emmanuelle Riva), Best Original Screenplay and Best Foreign Language Film. Grade: B
