Amour script
Amour (2012)
Synopsis: Retired music teachers Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) and Anne (Emmanuelle Riva) have spent their lives devoted to their careers and to each other. Their relationship faces its greatest challenge when Anne suffers a debilitating stroke. Though Georges himself suffers from the aches and infirmities of old age, he bravely ignores his own discomfort to take care of his wife, and is determined to keep his promise to her that she never go back to the hospital.

Continuation of the MUSIC from Scene 3.

Georges and Anne are seated side by side in the half empty

bus. Anne talks enthusiastically, Georges says something from

time to time, and smiles now and then. They are both relaxed

and happy.

SCENE 6 - INT. APARTMENT - HALLWAY - NIGHT

The door to the apartment is unlocked and opened from the

outside. THE MUSIC ENDS.

Georges comes in, turns on the light. He and Anne observe the

open door. Around the lock, one can see the traces of an

attempted forced entry.

Georges bends down and runs his fingers over the deep

grooves.

GEORGES:

They used a screwdriver or

something like that...it doesn’t

look very professional...

ANNE:

But who would do something like

that?

GEORGES:

No idea. Why do people break in?

Because they want to steal

something.

ANNE:

From us?

GEORGES:

(laughs briefly out loud)

Hey, why not? If I thought about

it, I could come up with at least

three or four people we know who’ve

been burgled.

After having examined the outside of the second leaf of the

double door, he comes in, closing the door behind him.

4.

ANNE:

What time is it? Can’t we call the

superintendent?

GEORGES:

I’ll do that tomorrow morning.

Anyway, they didn’t see anything.

He unbuttons his overcoat and heads toward the large closet

in the hallway.

GEORGES (CONT’D)

Don’t let it spoil your good mood

now.

ANNE:

Or the police?

GEORGES:

Come on, give me your coat.

She goes toward him, he takes her coat off and hangs it with

his in the closet.

ANNE:

Imagine if we were here, in our

beds, and someone broke in.

GEORGES:

Why should I imagine that?

ANNE:

But it’s terrible! I think I’d die

of fright.

GEORGES:

(laughing)

So would I.

He undoes his shoes.

GEORGES (CONT’D)

Shall we have a drink?
