What if the director of Amour had been hired to do Star Wars VII?

Check out this spoof trailer shown at last month's 38th annual Cesar Awards show, France's equivalent of the Oscars.  Titled Star Wars: Episode VII - The Obscure Side of the Force, the video uses the aging Skywalker clan to re-create touching moments from the Academy Award-winning foreign movie Amour, directed by Michael Haneke.  

This is what we'd be in for if Haneke were strapped in behind the camera for the forthcoming mega-sequel instead of golden boy J.J. Abrams.

Warning: The notorious walkers in this version are far less menacing.  Have a look ...
