QUICK TAKE:
Drama: An older couple must contend with the ramifications of the wife's worsening health after a number of strokes make her increasingly dependent on him.
PLOT:
Georges (JEAN-LOUIS TRINTIGNANT) and Anne Laurent (EMMANUELLE RIVA) are a French couple who've been married for many years. Not long after returning from a piano concert held by Alexandre (ALEXANDRE THARAUD), one of her former students, Anne has an episode of not responding in any way to Georges. It's then revealed that she's had a stroke, a condition that eventually leaves her paralyzed on her right side and increasingly dependent on him. Their adult daughter, Eva (ISABELLE HUPPERT), is concerned about her mom and questions whether her father should care for her at home, a sentiment shared by others.

Being private people, and with Anne not wanting to return to the hospital, Georges agrees to keep her at home and take care of her, assisted by nurses and such who routinely visit. But as her condition progressively worsens, she no longer wants to be a burden on him, all while he wonders how much worse these conditions will get and whether he can continue with this course of action.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Unless they're older teens into foreign, art house films, it's highly unlikely.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For mature thematic material including a disturbing act, and for brief language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
