Michael Haneke

Sony Pictures Classics, which released Michael Haneke's Palme d'Or-winning and Oscar-nominated "White Ribbon," has acquired all North American rights to Films Du Losange's "Amour." The timing is key: the official Cannes announcement is April 19.

Written and directed by Haneke, the film stars French veterans Jean-Louis Trintignant ("Z," "A Man and a Woman," "The Conformist") and Emmanuelle Riva ("Hiroshima Mon Amour") as retired music teachers in their 80s whose daughter (Isabelle Huppert, Haneke's "The Piano Teacher") lives abroad with her family.

“I'm delighted that our fruitful collaboration with Sony Pictures Classics continues also with 'Amour,'" said Haneke.

Stefan Arndt, Veit Heiduschka, and Margaret Ménégoz produced the film with Austrian co-producer Michael Katz.
