Amour, 20 minutes--click. I think there's just a lot of bad filmmaking here. I don't understand the too long static shot of the audience preparing to watch the piano concerto. I don't get the husband who, regardless of how old he is, does't get on the horn to the amubulence when his wife's obviously stroking out. And then we spend another 7 minutes before he finally says, "I should call the doctor." Followed with another poorly framed and weirdly static shot of him talking to his daughter ceaselessly.

The end of life is not perfect.

Most of my critism had nothing to do with the end of life. It's unrealistic dislogue and unnecessary shots.


Personally I just have a hard time watching angst, hardship, heartbreak and sorrow for hours on end. Especially if it is well done.

Spending money and time to intentionally feel terrible is usually not high on my list no matter how beautiful the wallow may be.
