This is a 2012 French drama written and directed by the Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke. The film focuses on an elderly couple, Anne and Georges, who are retired music teachers with a daughter who lives abroad. Anne suffers a stroke which paralyses her on the right side of her body. What a depressing and heart-breaking movie it is! Yes, it is about love. What Georges did to his deteriorating wife is definitely an act of love, if not an act of God. Superb are the performances of the elderly actors---Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva.
