REVIEW: ‘Amour,’ a Winter Sonata in Love Major
I finally got to see Amour, the Austrian film by Michael Haneke that’s actually in French and set in Paris. It’s not for lack of trying; I simply couldn’t find a theater in L.A. showing it. You would have thought that a film nominated for five major Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Actress and Foreign Film, would be playing at the Arclight, the best darned cinema in the world. But no. Fandango didn’t list it as playing near me, either. Finally, I tweeted Sony Picture Classics in frustration and reprimanded them for not showing such a prestigious film in L.A. of all places.
