Luca Guadagnino’s BAFTA-nominated film, “Io Sono l’Amore” [Eng. Title: I am Love] is about a rich Milanese industrial family falling apart as winds of change sweep through their hitherto stable if stagnant empire.
The film is beautiful is beautifully made, and the impressive-as-ever Tilda Swinton gives her all as the central character – the next-in-line matriarch around whom the story unfolds, but the director and screenwriter have left her too much to do, with very little support from the script. But I found the background score annoying at time. Despite Ms. Swinton’s impeccable performance, I just couldn’t really care for her character, nor the others.
Emma, the wife of a wealthy Industrial magnate is neither happy nor unhappy, and embarks on an affair with her son’s best friend. Her daughter leaves her husband to live with a woman – she gets kicked out after disclosing the affair on the day of their son’s funeral…
