Love, death… But what is in between? Bringing the director his second Palm d’Or at Cannes three years after The White Ribbon, the moving tale of Michael Haneke covers the most difficult moments of life. Georges and Anne are in their eighties. They are cultivated, retired music teachers, deeply connected. Their daughter, who is also a musician, lives abroad with her family. One day, Anne has an attack. The couple’s bond of love is severely tested, and now they are preparing for death. Announced as Austria’s Oscar submission, Haneke’s shattering drama is fittingly tender though relentless, realistic and heartbreaking.(Filmekimi)
Aşk, ölüm… Peki arada ne var? Hayatın en zor anlarını beyazperdeye taşıyan Aşk Haneke’ye Cannes’da Beyaz Bant’tan üç yıl sonra ikinci kez Altın Palmiye’yi kazandırdı. Filmin kahramanları Georges ve Anne, seksenli yaşlarını sürmekte olan, birbirlerine çok bağlı, kültürlü, emekli müzik öğretmenleridir. Kendisi de bir müzisyen olan kızları yurtdışında yaşamaktadır. Bir gün, Anne felç geçirir. Aralarındaki sevgi bağı gitgide zorlanırken ölüme hazırlanırlar. Avusturya’nın Oscar adayı ilan edilen bu iç burkan dram, merhametli olduğu kadar acımasız, gerçekçi ve yürek paralayıcı.

The White Ribbon (Das weiße Band – Eine deutsche Kindergeschichte) (2009) Film. Director : Michael Haneke

From July, 1913 to the outbreak of World War I, a series of incidents take place in a German village. A horse trips on a wire and throws the rider; a woman falls to her death through rotted planks; the local baron’s son is hung upside down in a mill; parents slap and bully their children; a man is cruel to his long-suffering lover; another sexually abuses his daughter. People disappear. A callow teacher, who courts a nanny in the baron’s household, narrates the story and tries to investigate the connections among these accidents and crimes. What is foreshadowed? Are the children holy innocents? God may be in His heaven, but all is not right with the world; the center cannot hold. (Imdb)
