She melts. The cause is twofold: A dish of prawns and the young chef who has prepared it. We learn at one point that Emma was born in Russia and married young, but everything specific about her has long since been smoothed away.

Dissatisfied with a soulless life of planning dinner parties, Emma finds love with a younger man, one with the earthiness she needs to remedy her stale aristocratic life. Now this is a movie about many things: family, legacy, death, birth, incest, and definitions of love and loneliness among them, but what I like most about the film is its size. He tore it a new one.
Actresses come and go, but Tilda Swinton will always remain one of the best. No matter the role, she always brings her best effort for the film. I Am Love is just that: a film that showcases her talents as a remarkable actress. The style, beauty, and elegance of Milan is captured wonderfully.
Introducing her new movie, I am Love, to an audience of fashion and food people last February, Tilda Swinton in a razored asymmetrical blond hair do-we are used to seeing a redhead-said she would be on hand to help if we got impossibly hungry which is what happened with audiences at film festivals in Toronto and Sundance after seeing this stylish movie shot in Italy. She plays Emma Recchi, a wife and mother in a Milan mansion, an emotional ice palace. But soon we are seduced in nature, hidden caves and water racing over rocks, with glimpses of her naked-and having sex with her younger lover Antonio, a cook, who in one elegantly shot scene shears off the baggage of her neatly coiffed look.
However, very few films explore the sensual side of the human condition. The involvement of senses, the gratification of the physical touch or aspect between humans. Of course, this sensuality can lead to more sexuality, but here the filmmakers are more concerned with being sensual.
Did she understand when she married her husband what sort of family she was joining? She knew they were rich Italian aristocrats, operators of textile mills in Milan. But did she understand that as a wife from Russia, she would serve and provide and even be loved, but would never truly be a member?
Wed Jun 23pm 24 comments. I got into a bit of an intellectual tussle last night with a fellow critic who was absolutely stunned to hear me insist that damn straight, I certainly could condemn a movie for its morals. Do I like how it says what it has to say?
Feast Your Eyes. Sometimes, pretentiousness is not a bad thing. If you disagree, then I Am Love may not be the film for you.
I went on a non-double date last Friday with Sofia, her fiance Alex, and their friend Andrea, an Italian guy with a long distance girlfriend. Major props to Tilda for playing a Russian immigrant and learning to speak Italian with a Russian accent both Alex and Andrea confirmed the accent. The movie received amazing reviews and the trailer looked compelling…but the film was really slow. We can't figure out why everyone loves it.
