“When we look at the image of our own future provided by the old we do not believe it: an absurd inner voice whispers that that will never happen to us—when that happens it will no longer be ourselves that it happens to." Thus did Simone de Beauvoir’s “The Coming of Age” address the fundamental disbelief with which we regard old age. It is something that happens, that is certain, but it only happens to other people. In “Amour,” Haneke shows us that this disbelief remains even for those who are no longer young." (New Yorker)
