Blue Is the Warmest Color (2013)

amour film review

amour film review

    Amour (2012) is a film no less devastating for the sensitivity with which it’s handled. It’s both a celebration of love and devotion and a damnation of our helplessness in the face of what we’re least able to control.

powerful film that taught a young teacher, me, that young girls are dangerous and should be avoided at all means. again so many powerful scenes.

my all time favorite film. i had ot take a potty break about 2 hours into the film and i might not have returned if my wife had not been in theater. felt that it was a great film but it could hae just been the subject matter. saw it again about a week later and "it was a great film in all ways". so many powerful scenes.

when i saw this film in the mid 60s it changed my life. didn't have a clue that such films/subjects existed. i left the theater and was unable to speak for about 15 minutes.


looks like some interesting things here

    can also stream on computer. perhaps blue ray also

Hard to believe that such an old film could be so up to date subject wise - government ineffectiveness. Also hard to believe that I didn't see it until 2011. A GREAT FILM!!!

Hadn't seen tis film in years. Motivated to see it by a young couple that we met in Mexico, it is their favorite film. Need to make a vow to watch one classic movie a week. Criterion film series is a great source for the classics.

First film directed by actor Sarah Polley. It must have been intimidating to direct such veterans as Christie and Pinsent. Depressing but still loved it and its message. Discovered Canadian short story writer Alice Munro was a result of this film.

First film that I saw by Atom Egyan, blew me away. Discovered author Russell Banks as a result.

This award winning film, Silver Bear - Berlin '08, is the latest by Ramin Bahrini. Like his earlier fillms, MAN PUSH CART & CHOP SHOP, it looks at an immigrant hoping to become part of the American Dream. This film is the reason that we visited Blowing Rock last fall.

Saw this small film at Toronto festival in '08 and fell in love with it. A MUST SEE!

All of the mystery of Hitchcock, throw in some sex and you have this 5 star film. has been able to be steamed on Netflix in the past.

By far the best film that I have seen this year(2012), well deserving of the Oscar. It was the first film that we saw this year at the Toronto Film Festival, and we both left the theater saying "This film should be nominated for a AA!" No real surprises in the film, you get a silent film.

Hard to believe that this documentary was not nominated for an Oscar this year. It tells the story of a group of "violence interrupters" who battle to keep Chiago neighborhoods safe and to keep violent young men and women alive and out of the system. A MUST WATCH!

Nominated by Belgium for AA, this is another tough film. One of those films that you start out having a strong dislike for the main character but as the film progresses, your opinion drastically changes after earlier events are revealed.

    probably only those in major markets will have a chance to see it for a while. Watch for it on Netflix.

Heartwarming story of a film producer and the family servant who raised him and his siblings. As she enters old age, he wants to make the rest of her life as good as possible. Based on true story.

    another that you will have to wait for netflix to see.

A tough watch by British director Steve McQueen. Michael Fassbender should have been nominated for AA for his role. NOT FOR THE TIMID!

Won Best Foreign Language film - 2011. One of those films that keeps you changing your opinion on the characters and their guilt and innocence.

This documentary by Wim Wenders looks at the modern dance of German choreographer Pina Bausch. The best 3D that I have seen.
