Posted in Uncategorized tagged at 4:47 pm by Benedicte Mauguiere

Railroad Square Cinema and the Colby Film Society invite you to Dollar Night at the Movies to see AMOUR, this Tuesday, February 26 at 6:45 pm. Colby students, faculty, and staff pay only $1, so be sure to arrive early!

Nominated for a virtually unprecedented (for a foreign film) FIVE Oscars including Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Director, AMOUR has already won the National Society of Film Critics’ Award for Best Film of the Year. “A masterpiece about life, death and everything in between… This is a film that will make you weep not only because life ends but also because it blooms”-Manohla Dargis, N.Y. Times. “The title is French for love. The movie itself defines what love is. And it does it the hard way. No sex, drugs or rock & roll. Just two people offering each other total commitment. Did I mention both are in their 80s? Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) and Anne (Emmanuelle Riva) are retired music teachers living comfortably in Paris, with occasional visits from their daughter (Isabelle Huppert). Then Anne suffers two strokes. Riva, her face a study of age in agony, is magnificent. Austrian writer-director Michael Haneke achieves levels of intimacy previously unknown in his work. What happens next in his unique and unforgettable film must be left for you to discover. These two glam stars of French cinema give performances of breathtaking power and beauty.”-Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. In French with English subtitles. PG-13. 127 Min.
