Director: Luca Guadagnino
Stars: Tilda Swinton, Flavio Parenti, Edoardo Gabbriellini
Tilda Swinton plays, Emma, a Russian who's married into the family of a wealthy textile merchant in Milan in Italian director luca Guadagnino's gorgeous I Am Love. After a lavish dinner celebrating the birthday of the aging patriarch, she meets her son's business partner, Antonio, a chef. But it isn't his cooking that sends her running from her lifeâ€”actually, the cooking plays a small part.
Swinton speaks both Italian and Russian in her pet project, which she developed over an 11 year period with director Luca Guadagnino. That this is a labor of love shows in every decadent set and passionate sex scene.
