Austria feels the ‘Love’

Haneke's pic will vie for foreign-lingo Oscar consideration

BERLIN — Michael Haneke’s Cannes Golden Palm winner “Amour” (Love) has been selected as Austria’s entry for the foreign language Oscar race.

The choice was made by a nine-member jury appointed by Austrian film and music trade org Fama.

The French-language drama stars Emmanuelle Riva and Jean-Louis Trintignant as a loving and committed elderly couple forced to deal with the wife’s ailing health following two debilitating strokes. The film also features Isabelle Huppert, who starred in Haneke’s “The Piano Teacher.”

The pic, which Sony Pictures Classics is releasing Stateside in December, will have its North American premiere in Toronto’s Masters sidebar.

Haneke’s last pic, “The White Ribbon,” which also won Cannes’ Golden Palm, was likewise nominated for the 2010 foreign language Oscar, albeit as a German film.
