PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
Georges and Anne are an octogenarian couple. They are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter, also a musician, lives in Britain with her family. One day, Anne has a stroke, and the couple's bond of love is severely tested.
Jean-Louis Trintignant, who had unofficially retired from film acting to focus on stage work, agreed to play the male lead (a role that was written specifically for him) because of his admiration for Michael Haneke.
You are a monster sometimes.
At the end of the movie, when Georges is writing the letter, the sound of the pen scratching the paper does not match up.
