In this episode, I talk about Michael Haneke's 2012 film, "Amour." It's about Georges and Anne, an elderly Parisian couple who have their lives turned upside down after Anne suffers a stroke. This is a deeply devastating film that resonated with me. For over a year now, my mom has been struggling with her health and I've become a caregiver for her. I talk about the difficult experience of caring for someone and watching them suffer. I hope that, by sharing my experience, I can help others or just make them feel less alone.  This episode contains major spoilers. Consider making this podcast sustainable by supporting it on Patreon.Subscribe to the Her Head in Films Newsletter.Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram.Original logo by Dhiyanah HassanFull Show Notes:My episode on Fish TankMy episode on Oslo August 31stMy episode on Two Days, One NightMy episode on Wendy and LucyFunny GamesCacheMy episode on The Piano TeacherMy episode on Come and SeeShameHungerCries and WhispersHiroshima Mon AmourAll My SourcesAmour blu-rayMichael Haneke: Interviews "INTERIORS: An Analysis of Space in the Oscar-Nominated Film Amour" (Arch Daily)Indiewire Interview with Michael HanekeHollywood Reporter review of Amour
