I Am Love

Sophisticated tale of a married woman’s affair with her son’s business partner.  Film really takes its time in the details, recounting  the restrained existence of the Italian upper class.  At times the film’s deliberate pace can be a frustrating exercise in style over substance.  But oh what style!  Sumptuous photography highlights the film’s lavish set design and gorgeous Milan locations.  The film is a visual treat and its style, and not the story, carries the drama single-handedly.  Indeed, the last 30 minutes of the film scarcely has a single word of dialogue.  A beautiful, but flawed film.

  1. I’m not sure if I liked this movie, or not. It was beautiful and sophisticated, but left me bored at times. This movie needed more…..

  2. Looks so beautiful! Hope it opens in Mexico…
