Amour – an award winning film with an anti-life sting in the tail

Posted by Joseph on 12 December, 2012

Amour (literally, ‘Love’) is a 2012 French-language film written and directed by Michael Haneke which won the Palme d’Or (top prize) at the 2012 Cannes Flim Festival.

It is now screening in Britain.

The narrative focuses on an elderly couple, Anne and Georges, retired music teachers with a daughter living abroad….

One day, Georges sits next to Anne’s bedside after she has been crying out, apparently in pain. He tells her a story and as it reaches the conclusion, he grabs the pillow on the bed and smothers her with it.

I was particularly struck by the strong similarity between this film and another made in Europe just over 70 years ago.

Ich klage an (Eng: I Accuse) is a 1941 film, directed by Wolfgang Liebeneine

Ich klage an was actually commissioned by Goebbels at the suggestion of Karl Brandt to make the public more supportive of the Reich’s T4 euthanasia program, and presented simultaneously with the practice of euthanasia in Nazi Germany.
