Amour

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: What is the real definition of love? Not the immediate flash of romance and drama on first meeting or during high tension, but the day in, day out slog of living with someone through their best and worst impulses. The responsibility and follow through of taking complete care of someone, be it an infant son or an elderly parent, without giving in to the aggravations of such care.

Amour Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
22 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Michael Haneke's Amour comes to Blu-ray in North America rather late, but I think that folks who have been patiently waiting for a local release will be very pleased with Sony Pictures' technical presentation. In my opinion, this is one of the year's must-own Blu-ray releases. Do not miss it, folks. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Did you find this review helpful?

  • Conclusion: Amour isn't an easy viewing, but it is a substantial and rewarding one. Michael Haneke's portrait of the twilight of a long marriage is poignant, haunting, and refreshingly original. This drama is certainly among last year's better films and you'll be glad you made the effort to discover it.

Amour (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
14 August 2013
  • Excerpt: While the film is ultimately sad and disturbing, Haneke doesn't trade on sentiment; everything here, from the script to the direction to the performances, is clear-eyed, almost clinical. There are several long passages that are either silent or that feature banal chatter; what there is not is a single moment where an emotion is cued by music. In fact, virtually all the music in the film is classical—Schubert, Beethoven, Bach—and even that is used sparingly.

Amour

DVD Talk
11 August 2013
  • Conclusion: The great writer/director Michael Haneke's ongoing commitment to an unblinking, deeply aware, and brutally honest cinema goes to new, more intimate and personal places in Amour , and while it's not always easy to watch (nor should it be; even at its most painful, it always feels precisely and ineffably right), it's tremendously moving and powerful in a way very, very few films are.

  • Summary: Michael Haneke gives us an unflinching look at love in the twilight years, placing a lot on the shoulders of two stars who come through like the veterans they are.

Amour Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
1 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Michael Haneke's Amour is the most honest, most brutal yet genuinely uplifting film about love that I have ever seen. I think it is fair to say that it is also Haneke's best film to date. If you are an English-speaker and reside in a Region-B country, I urge to consider adding Amour to your collection. And if you reside in North America, let's hope that you will be able to purchase a local Blu-ray release soon. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Did you find this review helpful?

Amour Movie Review

  • Summary: Michael Haneke's latest falls a tad short of "The White Ribbon", but that only means it is far better than most everything else you have seen this year.

Amour

AV Club
18 December 2012
  • Excerpt: The subject of Michael Haneke ’s shattering Amour is right there in the title. It’s about the indignities of growing old and the inevitability of death, but only in the same way The Master concerns Scientology—as a means to an end, a phenomenon that reveal its characters’ true nature.
