Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Amour is an acclaimed but emotionally harrowing movie -- in French with English subtitles -- about how an elderly couple deals with a sharp decline in health. The title translates to "love," though this title can be taken both literally and ironically. There's one scene of shocking, life-changing violence, as well as some arguing (the argument contains a use of the word "f--k") and a nightmare sequence. There's a story about adultery, and an old woman is glimpsed naked while bathing. Thanks to many awards and strong critical reception, movie nuts will be interested in seeing what this is all about, but despite a PG-13 rating, Amour's mature subject matter is best for older teens and adults.

Sexual Content

The elderly female lead is briefly seen naked while being bathed. The couple's grown daughter tells a verbal story about an extramarital affair.

Violence

One horrible, shocking moment of life-changing violence. A dead body is shown. Also some arguing and a scary nightmare sequence, plus some generally upsetting sequences around the care of a sick, elderly invalid (falling down, peeing the bed, etc.).

Language

Though the movie has little foul language, one scene contains an argument with the words "f--k" and "prick." Other words include "damn" and "for Christ's sakes."

Social Behavior

The movie raises complex issues about old age, sickness, and care, and it will inspire discussions among those brave enough to see it. In some scenes, characters behave bravely, admirably, and responsibly in terms of caring for others, but in other scenes, they act selfishly, desperately, and horribly.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Not an issue, though in an early scene, after coming home from a concert, the elderly gentleman says that he'd like "another drink."
