    So far I’ve seen three Haneke films (Funny Games, Cache, White Ribbon) and they’ve all rubbed me the wrong way. But this review definitely made me look forward to seeing this, sounds wonderful.

    Great article; can’t wait to see this.

    From what I’ve seen of Haneke’s films, they always seem a little too academic (even though I hate that word, I feel like it’s particularly apt here). Amour, on the other hand, sounds like an actual movie instead of an exercise — a movie instead of a cynical essay. Even though I think Haneke has interesting things to say, the fact that he TREATS his movies as such has always been a bit offputting. Amour sounds a little less heavy-handed, and for that, I can’t wait — there are scenes from Funny Games and Cache’ that I will never be able to shake.
