I am Love

Italy, 2009 Directed: Luca Guadagnino. Starring: Tilda Swindon and Edoardo Gabbriellini.

This movie so far has been my favorite foreign film in the last couple of years. Ever since Amelie I haven't felt so emotional for a feature film. So soft and subtle but so alive and strong.
I Am Love
follows the wealthy Italian Recchi family during their period of turmoil in the dawning years of the new millennium. There are a number of changes and confrontations experience by all, but the most intriguing, and important, revolves around Emma’s (Tilda Swinton) affair with young chef Antonio (Edoardo Gabbriellini). Most impressively, Swinton learn Italian with a Russian accent for the role and she is most convincing.
