KALAMAZOO—The Kalamazoo Film Society will present "Amour" Friday through Sunday, April 12-14, at Western Michigan University's Little Theatre.
Show times are 7 and 9:30 p.m. Friday; 4:30, 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday; and 2:30, 5 and 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5.
Critically acclaimed and the recipient of multiple awards, "Amour" is a profound look at life and love. Long-married Parisian musician-teachers enjoy their retirement years in an apartment full of books and music. Their cultured and comfortable lives are changed in a moment when the wife suffers a slight stroke, and the complications from a medical procedure not only prevent a full recovery, but hasten her decline. "Amour" is an honest portrayal of the grace and determination of the human spirit amidst the deterioration of health.
Starring Jean-Louis Trintignant, Emmanuelle Riva and Isabelle Hubert, and directed by Michael Haneke, the film is rated PG-13 for mature thematic material and has a run time of 127 minutes.
