I don't discuss movies very often here, but this one caught my attention and I had to share. I just stumbled across the trailer for "I Am Love" over at Apple Trailers this weekend. I'm immediately drawn to movies that take place in Italy, but this one in particular was filmed in my beloved Milan!
I recognized several major landmarks and it looks like it is a beautifully filmed movie starring Tilda Swinton:
I love this shot of her on top of il Duomo.
The web site synopsis had this to say:
I AM LOVE tells the story of the wealthy Recchi family, whose lives are undergoing sweeping changes. Eduardo Sr., the family patriarch, has decided to name a successor to the reigns of his massive industrial company, surprising everyone by splitting power between his son Tancredi, and grandson Edo. But Edo dreams of opening a restaurant with his friend Antonio, a handsome and talented chef.
At the heart of the family is Tancredi's wife Emma (Tilda Swinton), a Russian immigrant who has adopted the culture of Milan. An adoring and attentive mother, her existence is shocked to the core when she falls quickly and deeply in love with Edo's friend and partner Antonio, and embarks on a passionate love affair that will change her family forever.
I think it will be tricky for me to find this playing in a theater near us, but you can bet I'll be on the look out for it!
