Channelling the epic power of Tolstoy and Visconti, I am Love sweeps us inside the world of a wealthy Milanese family to deliver a saga of great subtlety and dazzling impact. The Recchis are Italian aristocracy, ensconced in an opulent mansion under the iron hand of Emma (Tilda Swinton) and her father-in-law, patriarch Edoardo Sr. Here they are gathered to celebrate Edoardo's birthday, and hear the succession plans that will determine so many destinies. But the party is marked by a series of incremental transgressions. As buried secrets are unearthed and hidden passions are ignited, the family dynamic undergoes a subtle but profound transformation, and the clan is forced to confront the limits of its power and self-control.
I am Love, dir. Luca Guadagnino, Italy 2009, 120 mins
