Georges and Anne are an octogenarian couple. They are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter, also a musician, lives in Britain with her family. One day, Anne has a stroke, and the couple's bond of love is severely tested.
A teacher lives a lonely life, all the while struggling over his son's custody. His life slowly gets better as he finds love and receives good news from his son, but his new luck is about to be brutally shattered by an innocent little lie.
Thomas Bo Larsen,
Adele's life is changed when she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adele grows, seeks herself, loses herself and ultimately finds herself through love and loss.
A married couple are faced with a difficult decision - to improve the life of their child by moving to another country or to stay in Iran and look after a deteriorating parent who has Alzheimer's disease.
Georges and Anne are a couple of retired music teachers enjoying life in their eighties. However, Anne suddenly has a stroke at breakfast and their lives are never the same. That incident begins Anne's harrowingly steep physical and mental decline as Georges attempts to care for her at home as she wishes. Even as the fruits of their lives and career remain bright, the couple's hopes for some dignity prove a dispiriting struggle even as their daughter enters the conflict. In the end, George, with his love fighting against his own weariness and diminished future on top of Anne's, is driven to make some critical decisions for them both. Written by

Not a word of the script was changed during production. The film was shot exactly as it was written, word for word. See more »

... some banal romance or other about a nobleman and a lower middle-class girl who couldn't have each other and who then, out of sheer magnanimity, decide to renounce their love - in fact, I don't quite remember it any more. In any case, afterwards I was thoroughly distraught, and it took me a bit of time to calm down. In the courtyard of the house where gradma lived, there was a young guy at the window who asked me where I'd been. He was a couple of years older than...

My God! This must be one of the worst movies of all time! My wife and i just returned from seeing it at a historic theater here in Bolivia.
The acting is incredible but totally unable to overcome the tedium.
Boring. Boring. Boring. Much time is spent making tea, looking out the window, dealing with a symbolic pigeon, going to the bathroom, going to bed, reading. Not that I like action movies.
And it goes on and on leading to nothing. For a while you think, "This is going to lead somewhere interesting, surely." But, of course, it doesn't, only back to the beginning where the old woman, Anne, has finally died. They could have left it at that and produced a much better movie that would cause you pain and suffering from boredom for only a minute or two, not four hours.
Oh, the movie isn't THAT long? It's news to me! Arty? Yes. Art? LOL!
