Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) and Anne (Emmanuelle Riva) are a couple in their 80s. Both are retired music teachers and performers, deeply in love as they have always been. One morning at breakfast, Anne suffers a stroke and surgery makes the situation worse. She makes her husband promise that he will let her stay at home.
Georges becomes her caregiver and watches as his life companion gradually disappears while his own well-being is strained to the limit.
This movie won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film.
