This film is an intensely rewarding masterpiece on the question of ageing, The main characters are elderly musicians, named George and Anne. Coming home from a concert they find that their apartment has been broken into. Anne goes into both physical and mental decline but the couple’s love is unshakeable. This is a film of delicacy and immense force, made by one of the most accomplished film directors of our time. It deservedly won the Palme D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012.
