Emmanuelle Riva has sadly passed away at the age of 89.

I Am Setsuna is Now a Nintendo Switch Launch Title

However it was her role in 2012's Amour which, at the age of 85, finally found her worldwide recognition. 'If I don't act in another film, who cares? It's pure Haneke - life sucks and we often make it suckier - and Anne's demise, which begins in a flash during a magnificently subtle table scene, is shown to be at once real and inevitable.

We send our condolences to all of her loved ones during this hard time.
