I Am Love – Luca Guadagnino

IAmLove2This movie was slow to start with but built as time passed. Filmed in Milan with subtitles but to be honest didn’t spoil the film in anyway and in fact I think added to the whole atmosphere of the movie.
To start you are introduced to the family and the family business. With the grandfather poorly he invites them all round for a family dinner and to share with them who he believes should take over the business. As this is all falling into place we start to see more of the other family members’ lives in particular Emma Recchi, the main character.
Emma Recchi was played by Tilda Swinton who gave a great performance of her emotional awakening and how it affected the whole family with tragic results.
The supporting cast protrayed their characters extremely well.
The film is beautifully shot with wonderful visual impressions throughout. The music was equally lovely and appropriate for the story.
I really enjoyed the film but my partner didn’t. She said she had no idea what was going on. So two, very different opinions – I would, however, recommend that you watch it and make your own mind up.
