At the Cannes Film Festival in 2012 where the movie premiered, Nanni Moretti was the Jury President. The film's producers were worried about the chances of Amour at winning the Palme D'Or because in 1997, when Michael Haneke had competed for the Palme D'Or with his controversial Funny Games (1997), Nanni Moretti was a jury member and had strongly disliked the film going so far as to say that if Michael Haneke won a single prize, he would walk off the jury. The producers fears were laid to rest when Michael Haneke indeed won the Palme D'or for Amour.
What would you say if no one came to your funeral?
Georges: Nothing, presumably.
When Georges and Anne are eating together he first cuts her food for her with a Laguiole knife. Later on he is holding a classic knife with a round point.
