Amour (Love)

Father to daughter discussing his wife coming home from hospital after a stroke:
"We've always coped, your mother and I. This is all a bit new."

Woman to her elderly father: "It's funny. Sorry if this embarrasses you. But when I came in earlier, I remembered listening to you two making love when I was little. For me, it was reassuring. It made me feel you loved each other and that we'd always be together."

From "Amour" by Michael Haneke.

I found this film almost unbearably painful. A really excellent work.
