Amour Review - 3 Stars

This powerful French film (subtitled) tells the story of a longtime married couple approaching their eighties who vow to take care of each other even in the face of memory loss and death.  “Amour” won top honors at the Cannes Film Festival.  “Amour” tells a moving and sad story with creative touches and and an open to interpretation ending. “Amour” looks death square in the face.  Are you brave enough to watch?  Does it deliver what it promises?  Profound love story.  Is it entertaining?  Not entertaining but certainly moving.  Is it worth the price of admission?  Not many films like this one.
