CAST & CREW
I am Love is a movie that describes various love notions happening in the Recchi family, who are facing ups and downs in their family business. This Italian movie is directed by Luca Guadagdino
Flavio Parenti, son of Pippo Delbono and Swinton, introduces Diane Fleri as his girlfriend. Meanwhile, Parenti's sister, Alba, tries to convey to her brother that she is a lesbian. Before Parenti, Swinton comes to know about this. Swinton creates an affair with her son's friend, Edoardo. When Parenti comes to know this, he has a serious argument with his mother, and a tragic incident happens. Will everyone be able to cope up with the incident? The further life-turning events are described towards the climax.
At the start of the movie, the director gives a high amount of detail, which these scenes over-dominate our thoughts, and stops us from thinking on how the movie proceeds. Moreover, each of the Recchi's clan members has their personal problems, which are not linked to the other character's scenes. But all the characters are explained in detail as well.
Swinton completely has her control of her emotions. She beautifully displays her grief, desire in exemplary quantity. Parenti gives a warm presence in the scenes that involve him. Rohrwacher and Paiato win our hearts. Though they were on the screen for small supporting roles, their dedication and passion toward the role made them give a strong impact on screen. WHAT'S THERE? The aesthetic shots of San Remo and Milan are purely a visual treat. John Adam's mesmerizing music adds flavor to the scenes. They engage us more towards the screen. WHAT'S NOT THERE? Though this movie is a beautiful masterpiece, the slow moving nature of the movie will not entertain everyone.
A tiresome, yet a beautiful and an artistic movie.
