Love (Amour) trailer offers heartache
The trailer for Michael Haneke's new film Love (Amour) doesn't give away that much and I found was rather lacklustre until the moment of the piano playing scene which hits with quite the emotional weight. It's a saddening moment that probably sways the entire trailer.
It really is a powerful scene which sells me on the film, something the previous trailers haven't been able to do, despite the fact that it's a Haneke film.
The film stars Jean-Louis Trintignant, Emmanuelle Riva and Isabelle Huppert and tells the story of an elderly couple who share a love of music and of culture. It tells how their lives are affected when one of them suffers an attack after which their relationship is severely tested.
That's a powerful scene, will the rest of the film be like that do you think?
