Episode 123: Michael Haneke's 'Amour' (2012)

Episode Summary

In this episode, I talk about Michael Haneke's 2012 film, "Amour." It's about Georges and Anne, an elderly Parisian couple who have their lives turned upside down after Anne suffers a stroke. This is a deeply devastating film that resonated with me. For over a year now, my mom has been struggling with her health and I've become a caregiver for her. I talk about the difficult experience of caring for someone and watching them suffer. I hope that, by sharing my experience, I can help others or just make them feel less alone. This episode contains major spoilers. Full show notes: https://herheadinfilms.simplecast.com/episodes/episode-123-michael-hanekes-amour-2012
